Men's Football Moore accepted Baggies job 'instantly'

DARREN MOORE said today that he had no hesitation in accepting the West Brom job on a permanent basis.

The Baggies, who will start next season in the Championship, appointed Moore as head coach on Friday after the 44-year-old’s impressive stint as caretaker boss.

“I’m extremely proud,” Moore said at a press conference. “It’s a great moment for me. I accepted the offer instantly. I’m really looking forward to the job ahead.”

Moore added: “The Championship is a very tough, gruelling, relentless league with many challenges to overcome and I am very much looking forward to it. Having played in that division I know what lies ahead.

“The ultimate ambition is to keep this club moving forward. To say it’s promotion would be wrong because there are 23 other clubs vying for that.

“We will come together as a football club to discuss the budget and transfers and things like that and it will be a busy summer, but together as a club we will discuss all that.”

On the make-up of his backroom team, Moore said he would be appointing an “assistant head coach,” but added he was not yet in a position to name him.
