Moyes looking forward to 'good relationship' with Brady

David Moyes says that he and Karren Brady will get on just fine, despite the fact that he was fined 30,000 by the FA last year for misogynistic comments made towards a female reporter.

Moyes, who was unveiled as West Ham's new manager yesterday was asked during his inaugural press conference whether there would be any issues with Brady, who previously condemned the club's new manager in a newspaper article regarding the incident.

However the 54-year-old brushed off any concerns, whilst insisting that the two had already spoken without mentioning the incident.

"It was Karren who I spoke to on the phone and it was Karren who I had a meeting with," said Moyes. "I think if you read Karren's piece, which I have done, I don't think it's quite as clear as that.

"I've said many times that I made a mistake - I apologised for the mistake right away - and as you can see, we talk with journalistrs like this all the time and sometimes, you know, it can go the wrong way. But I apologised for that at the time.

"She didn't discuss it at all for as you said, it was written six months ago. I don't think there was any need to do that and I've had two or three conversations with Karren that have been very good.

"I've actually quite enjoyed listenning to her, so. hopefully we can have a good relationship."

Whilst co-chairman David Sullivan and David Gold have both released statements welcoming Moyes to the club, vice chair Brady is yet to issue a public response to his unveiling.
