Saido Berahino has been called a good lad by club manager, Tony Pulis.
Berahino has been named on the bench for the last eight matches and according to Tony Pulis, he was lucky to make the bench in the win over Newcastle.
And the 22-year-old, who was at the center of a transfer controversy last season, has had timekeeping issues, but Pulis feels Berahino is just growing.
He told a news conference on Thursday: “It’s got nothing to do with anybody apart from me and Saido.
“He’s trained well this week, he’s been in on time and he’s done everything that everyone else has done.
“He just lapses, it’s not because he’s a bad lad or anything. It’s just the way he is, it’s just him growing up and recognising it’s about the group, about the team, and the football club.
“That’s all done and dusted, we’ve moved on from that.”
