Tony Pulis says Arsenal loanee Serge Gnabry is not yet ready to play Premier League football with West Brom.
The 20-year-old has played just 12 minutes in the league after penning a season-long loan with the Baggies.
“Serge has come here to play games but he just hasn’t been for me, at the moment, at that level to play the games,” the Express and Star quote Pulis as saying.
“He’s come from academy football and not played much league football.
“Does academy football really prepare players for league football? And we’re talking about Premier League football here. As a manager you pick a team that’s going to win a game of football.”
