“Before you even ask will I speak to upstairs? Of course I will because it’s getting difficult”
The Baggies were thumped 4-1 at home by Leicester in the Premier League yesterday afternoon, with goals from Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Kelechi Iheanacho and Vicente Iborra compiling Pardew’s misery.
He has recorded just one victory at the club since replacing Tony Pulis back in October, leaving the Baggies eight points from safety at the bottom of the table.
And Pardew himself admitted club chiefs could be forced into making a decision over his future.
“Before you even ask will I speak to upstairs? Of course I will because it’s getting difficult,” he said.
“I will still talk to them and get a feel for what they think because they might think a change is a better thing for the club.”
If Pardew was to leave The Hawthorns, though, who could take the reins?
