Warburton joins Hammers’ backroom team

West Ham United have confirmed the appointment of former Brentford, Rangers, Nottingham Forest and Queen’s Park Ranger manager, Mark Warburton as their new first-team assistant coach.

The hugely experienced 59-year-old arrives at West Ham following the departure of former England defender, Stuart Pearce.

Speaking to www.whufc.com, Warburton enthused: “It’s a huge privilege to be joining West Ham United to work as part of David Moyes’ backroom staff.

“West Ham have made incredible progress in recent seasons, continually making forward strides to move the Club in a positive direction.

“I am excited about coming in and adding my own experience and know-how to what is an incredibly strong coaching team here.”
