‘He sent me a message’: Darren Moore shares Tony Pulis contact after being appointed at SWFC

The Darren Moore era is well and truly underway at Sheffield Wednesday, and although the new gaffer has already had his first game in charge, there’s a lot we don’t know about how the Owls will look under him.

Moore has proven he can be a success at this level in the past, taking West Brom within a penalty shootout of a playoff final,.

Perhaps Moore’s best attribute is his tremendous well of experience he can draw upon.

Indeed, the new gaffer has almost 30 years’ worth of experience in the game, as both a player and a coach, and when speaking to the Sheffield Star he’s claimed that he’s been soaking up information from every manager he’s ever worked with.

“Every single manager I’ve worked with I’ve taken something from in a learning perspective. I couldn’t say there is a particular manager that I speak to more often Every one of them I’ve taken something with me,” Moore said.

Of course, Tony Pulis is a manager Moore has worked with very closely. Moore was even his captain during the Welshman’s spell at Portsmouth, and they also worked together at West Brom during Pulis’ tenure in the Midlands.

While speaking to the Star, Moore revealed that Pulis had actually reached out and got in touch with him after hearing he’d got the Wednesday job.

“He sent me a message to wish me well, but I’ve not spoken to him yet. I’m sure at some stage I’ll speak to him over the course of the month or something like that,”

Regardless of your thoughts on Pulis after his tough spell as Wednesday boss, it’s great to hear that there’s seemingly no hard feelings between Moore and his ex-gaffer.

Moore is obviously Pulis’ successor, and while things didn’t quite work out for the ex-Stoke City boss at Hillsborough,  it seems as though he’ll be rooting for the Owls under Moore.
