The former Baggies defender has been officially chosen as a manager of the relegated team as he almost helped them escaped the zone while being the caretaker.

When Moore took over, West Brom at the bottom of the standings and ten points into the relegation zone. However, he then went on to lead them to collect 11 points out of a total of 18 possible, even winning against Manchester United and Tottenham.

Despite those 11 points being not enough to keep them in the top-flight, they were more than sufficient for him to be officially elected as a manager.

“We are delighted to confirm Darren as our new head coach and we look forward to his continuing the excellent work we saw when he stepped into the role in an interim capacity in the first week of April,” CEO of West Bromwich Albion Mark Jenkins announced.

“He embodies the spirit of the club and the spirit of what we are striving to achieve in this new chapter ahead.”

“We conducted a thorough process of recruitment but Darren’s powerful impact on the pitch and across all areas of the club established him as the outstanding candidate.”

“We suffered a torrid season but if there was a redeeming feature it was to see Darren at work over those final weeks, galvanising the club and getting everyone positive again,” Jenkins went on to add.

“We all know we have a challenging summer ahead of us but from talking at length to Darren about his plans, they are challenges he is ready to meet head on.”
