West Ham recently appointed former QPR manager Mark Warburton as the club’s new Assistant Coach for the 2022/23 season, but what should we expect from him?
Following the departure of Stuart Pearce at the end of last season, the Hammers have brought in an experienced and football-educated manager to help assist the first-team squad.
David Moyes already has a strong backroom staff with the likes of Kevin Nolan, Paul Nevin and Billy McKinlay to assist him.
However, the appointment of Mark Warburton will certainly offer the squad a boost this season, and he has a strong CV to show why he is the perfect man for the job.
The London-born manager has previously managed teams like Brentford, Rangers, Nottingham Forest and, most recently, Queens Park Rangers.
Having a coach that has experience leading teams will certainly offer the Hammers a new and stronger dynamic going into the new campaign.
Warburton has won several accolades over the years, taking Brentford from League One into the Championship play-offs and winning the Scottish Championship second division and Challenge Cup during his time at Rangers.
On top of this, the former manager offers his teams the chance to play attractive, possession-based football and now he can bring his knowledge of the game to east London.
Most recently, Warburton helped QPR finish 10th in the Championship, finishing only nine points off a play-off spot.
It is evident that the former right-back, who played at non-league level with Enfield and Boreham Wood, has lots to offer as a first-team coach at West Ham.
The Hammers should definitely be excited about this latest appointment, and hopefully Warburton can use his expertise to help the club finish strongly in both domestic and European competition this year.
