Pulis said: “Craig is somebody I have great respect for, he is a top quality character. He's a young coach and very enthusiastic.

“Coaching is a massive cross-section of opinion and it’s nice to have people questioning what you’re doing and how you do things.

"I was one of the youngest people ever to get my coaching badges and was always questioning my managers! I think it’s healthy."
