Feature

Salomon Rondon Q&A

23 May 2017
Rondon's second season in the Premier League saw him bag eight goals and plenty of praise from team mates and pundits as he played the lone striker role in the system favoured by the Baggies.
 
The highlight was the second-half hat-trick which beat Swansea in mid December, a goal feat spread over just 13 minutes but the first all-headed triplet since a Duncan Ferguson hat-trick for Everton against Bolton in 1997.
 
The smiling striker signed a four-year contract on arriving from Zenit St Petersburg in August 2015 for a then undisclosed by club record fee.

Rondon: It's all about the crosses!

14 December 2016
Rondon was a forward of growing reputation since his 2010 move to Malaga where he scored 25 goals in 67 appearances, including the Champions League, during a two-year stay.
 
His form in Spain triggered a big-money move to Rubin Kazan and another two-year stay (13 goals in 36 appearances) before Zenit, Russia’s biggest club, snapped up his services. He grabbed 20 goals in 37 appearances during the 2014/15 campaign.
 
Head Coach Tony Pulis admitted Rondon's form had been effected in the 2016/17 campaign by difficulties at home and the striker made an emotional tribute to victims of political turmoil in Venezuela when he ended his barren spell with a goal at Burnley on May 6.
