West Brom Announces Darren Moore As Manager

Darren Moore

Newly relegated club, West Bromwich Albion has successfully tied down Darren Moore as their new manager.

Moore, who was a former West Brom defender, was appointed as a caretaker manager after the departure of Alan Pardew back in April and led his squad in an unbeaten run acquiring three win and two draws, which was proven to not be enough to save the Baggies from relegation, who were at the foot of the Premier League with 10 points to the safety zone.

The baggies owner, Gouchan Lai took a meeting with Chief executive Mark Jenkins and Technical director Guiliano Terraneo during the week to assess their option of potential managers to sign, in which Moore emerged victor.

During his short tenure in the Premier League, Moore received the Premier League Manager of the Month award after succeeding in defeating Manchester United and Newcastle in an away matches and a win at home to Tottenham plus a draw from Liverpool.

The new manager said to the club website via Sky Sports: “I am obviously extremely proud to accept this role and also extremely excited. We have a big summer ahead of us, a lot of hard work we need to get in now,”

“I’m going all out to try and get those plans and personnel in place to make sure we’ve got everything ready. And we need to be because this is a tough league packed with great clubs.

“But what an opportunity for us to move the club in the right direction.”

Meanwhile, West Brom will be ready to lose some set of players this season, as defender Jonny Evans ad Striker Salomon Rondon both link with a move out of the Hawthorns Stadium this summer and also James Morrison, Gareth McAuley and Boaz Myhill all reported to be out of contract with the Baggies and could move on from the club.
