West Brom midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu promises to clean up act
West Brom bad boy Youssouf Mulumbu insists he has learnt the lessons of his ill discipline and can avoid an unwanted hat-trick in Sunday's derby clash with Wolves at the Hawthorns.
The Baggies midfielder has already been given his marching orders twice during the current campaign against Manchester City and Everton.
Albion head coach Roberto Di Matteo has already told Mulumbu to clean up his act and left him out of the starting line-up last weekend against Aston Villa following his ban.
Mulumbu is determined to take his advice on board and hopes to be involved against Mick McCarthy's side.
Mulumbu said: "I spoke to the gaffer about how important it is for me to stay on the pitch.
"I've been sent off twice now so I have to learn from that, learn from that experience.
"I was very disappointed with my suspension and to miss the derby against Villa.
"But it was the right decision for the gaffer to leave me out as we had beaten Newcastle in the previous game."
Mulumbu added: "I am still young and taking things on board. Now I hope I can get back into the side and I have been training hard.
"It's a big season for me in the Premier League."
