West Ham appoint Mark Warburton as assistant coach

Former Rangers manager Mark Warburton


West Ham have hired former Brentford, Nottingham Forest, QPR and Rangers manager Mark Warburton as an assistant coach to David Moyes.

Warburton, 59, will work with the first team from this weekend when the players return for pre-season training.

He joins Kevin Nolan, Billy McKinlay, Paul Nevin and Xavi Valero in Moyes’s back room staff.

Warburton took over at Brentford in 2013 after holding sporting director and assistant manager roles at the club.

He went on to manage in west London for two seasons before taking up the role of Rangers boss in June 2015.

In 2017, the former manager held a brief ten-month stint at Nottingham Forest in the Championship and later became QPR chief in 2019.

After his three seasons at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, QPR decided not to renew his contract in April and handed the position to 41-year-old Michael Beale.

He averaged 1.4 points per match over 150 games whilst in the QPR hotseat.

Having finished seventh in the Premier League last campaign, West Ham have once again secured European qualification and will play in the Europa Conference League next season.

Warburton’s experience and know-how will present a boost to Moyes as he attempts to navigate through yet another jam-packed fixture schedule.

West Ham confirmed the signing of Rennes defender Nayef Aguerd in a deal worth £30million earlier this week and are linked with upcoming free agent Jesse Lingard and Sassuolo hitman Gianluca Scamacca, according to reports.
