WEST HAM TO APPOINT PELLEGRINI
West Ham United have agreed a deal to appoint Manuel Pellegrini as their next manager as per Di Marzio. The Sky Sports journalist claims that the former Manchester City manager has signed a 3 year deal with the Hammers.
Pellegrini is currently with Hebei China Fortune. The Chinese Super League side are struggling despite having the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi, Gervinho, Javier Mascherano and Hernanes.
They are 9th in the 16-team league table with 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in their 10 games this season. With Pellegrini leaving mid-season, it looks like Hebei were also looking to replace him and it is a mutual termination of the contract.
West Ham United parted ways with David Moyes last week. He guided them to Premier League safety this season after a terrible start under Slaven Bilic.
“When David and his team arrived, it was the wish of both parties that the focus be only on the six months until the end of the season, at which point a decision would be made with regards to the future,” said West Ham joint-chairman David Sullivan on the club’s official website.
