No charges against Baggies quartet

By Robert Jones

A Spanish court has decided not to pursue a case against the four West Brom players who allegedly stole a taxi in Barcelona last week, according to reports.

Jonny Evans, Gareth Barry, Jake Livermore and Boaz Myhill were involved in an incident while the Baggies were away on a warm-weather training camp and team-bonding exercise.

They were interviewed by local police, but the quartet appear set to escape punishment as there is insufficient evidence to continue with the case, which reports say has been provisionally dismissed but could be reopened if new evidence comes to light.

West Brom were unavailable for comment when contacted.

The four players apologised for breaking a curfew in a collective statement on Friday, but West Brom manager Alan Pardew has said he was left "furious" by the incident.

Events in Barcelona increased the heat on Pardew, whose position has been the subject of speculation in the wake of boardroom upheaval and poor results.

Pardew named both Evans and Barry in his starting line-up for the FA Cup fifth-round defeat by Southampton at The Hawthorns on Saturday, although the former was stripped of the captaincy.

Pardew is set to decide this week whether to give the armband back to the former Manchester United defender or permanently remove it.

Since Pardew took charge in November, West Brom have won just three of 17 matches and are bottom of the Premier League, seven points adrift of 17th-placed Huddersfield.
