Mark Warburton has departed Hammers

West Ham coach Mark Warburton has departed the club by mutual consent.

The former Brentford, Rangers, Nottingham Forest and Queens Park Rangers manager, joined the club last June but after what are described on the official site as “amicable talks”  with manager David Moyes over the last few days  has now departed.

Moyes thanked the coach for all of his hard work and support during his time here. He’s played an important role for us over the last 12 months adding he had been a great help to hi personally.

But he explained: However, with his aspirations to seek a more senior position elsewhere, we felt it was the right time to agree to part ways. On behalf of all of the players and staff, I wish Mark every success in the future.”

Warburton said: “I am hugely grateful to West Ham United and, in particular, David Moyes for the opportunity to work for this fantastic football club.

“I’ve enjoyed my time here but, at this stage of my career, I am keen to seek new opportunities at a more senior level that are aligned with the attributes I believe I have to offer.

“I wish everyone at West Ham well and will always have fond memories of my time here.”

    I just wonder how many more players and coaching staff will walk away now that they know Moyes is staying. At the games you could see Warbutten getting really frustrated with Moyes for not making decision, not replacing the right players and being too defensive. Rice, Scamacca, Vkasic, Lanzini dont want to play for him anymore.. who else Ings, antonio. The club need to wake before they have a big dilemma on their hands. We will find it hard to attrack the right players under Moyes. I cant believe we have not gone straight in for Potter he is ideal for us.

    Interestingly, Mark Warburton was 1st team head coach for 1 season, probably West Ham’s most under-performing Premier League season since Avram bleedin’ Grant.
