Tony Pulis "Amazed" By Serge Gnabry's Career Turnaround After Flopping At West Brom

Tony Pulis "Amazed" By Serge Gnabry's Career Turnaround After Flopping At West Brom

Tony Pulis admits he's "amazed" by Serge Gnabry's career turnaround after flopping at West Brom.

Ex-Baggies boss Pulis took Gnabry on loan from Arsenal in the 2015/16 season, but the attacker failed to impress as he secured a switch back to Germany before eventually moving to Bayern Munich in 2017.

He has been a revelation at Bayern Munich, and he continued his goal scoring ways on Tuesday as he scored four goals in a stunning individual performance against Tottenham in the Champions League.

And speaking after Gnabry's four-goal haul, Pulis reflected on the 24-year-old's time at The Hawthorns while revealing his struggles.

"I'm amazed. We had him at West Brom, we took him on loan and we could never get him fit. He got taken off in an under-21 game," he said on Sky Sports.

"He went back to Arsenal and they sold him on. He was a good kid... didn't mind him at all. He's fulfilled his potential. You can knock me over with a feather

"Having worked with him at West Brom and seeing him there to what he's done is just absolutely amazing. When people show what they can really do... really knuckle down and become so good, as he's done, it's absolutely fantastic."

Gnabry said his side sent a message to the rest of Europe following Bayern's 7-2 victory.

"I think the other teams know we are not stopping. After the 3-1 or 4-2 we could have stopped but we wanted more. I think it's a big message for everyone else," he said.

"It was a great performance - one of the best we've had so far. To score seven goals away at Tottenham, I don't think this happens a lot! It was a great night and we're in a good place now in the Champions League."
