West Ham coach breaks silence on Moyes relationship

Former West Ham coach Mark Warburton has admitted that he and David Moyes frequently fell out on footballing matters as they both have different football philosophies on the game and he has admitted to often challenging the manager in his time at West Ham.

The challenging bit for me was, I’ve been managing for so long… and you’re the decision maker – not in an arrogant way, I don’t mean that at all in an arrogant fashion – just the fact that you’re used to that process and then suddenly you’re not,” Warburton said on Sky Sports News 

“I think David and I have different philosophies on the game, which is part of the reason he wanted me to come in. But I think I just found that really challenging.

And the most important thing to me was friendship in that and I think our friendship would have been in danger if we’d have just carried on with me challenging certain things.

“So we left in a very amicable way. We had a good conversation and they looked after me and anything I can do to help David, help the club, I’ll always do.”

6foot2 understands that Warburton allegedly often told people that he would make a better manager at West Ham and struggled with relationship with Moyes at times.

After his comments on Sky News last weekend Warburton did an additional interview with Geo from Hammers Chat on Youtube which can be seen below.
