Mel admitted to feeling emotional after seeing the fans waving Spain flags in tribute to him as he recorded his first victory as manager against Swansea City last week.
"I've had eight matches here and only one win but the fans have always been very kind with me - it's incredible," the 51-year-old told the club's official website. "West Brom is a family; we are altogether with staff, fans and players.
"Yes I did become very emotional at Swansea.
"I've only been here two months in a different country, with a different language, and the people have shown me great amounts of kindness already. I owe them a lot."
