Baggies would welcome Batistuta
Gabriel Batistuta
Batistuta retired in March
Bryan Robson has opened the door for Argentinan legend Gabriel Batistuta to team up with West Brom's coaching staff during pre-season training.

An agent offered Robson the services of the 36-year-old former Fiorentina and Roma striker as a coach last season.

Robson said: "I don't know whether it was truthful or not.

"But if Batistuta does genuinely want to come in to look at the way we train and have some input with the strikers, I would certainly look at that."

Batistuta retired from playing in March this year after injury cut short a spell in Qatar.

In 2001 he scored 20 goals in 28 matches to help Roma win the Serie A title.
