West Ham United have appointed Manuel Pellegrini, one of the most coveted managers in the world of football, according to club chairman David Sullivan. (via BBC)
The appointment comes just days after David Moyes was sacked from the club, despite securing West Ham’s survival in the Premier League, as the club looks to challenge for European football once more.
“I am excited about this project. My mentality is always to have a winning mentality,” said Pellegrini.
“I think that West Ham had a difficult season last season and I hope that next season we are going to play football that will delight the fans. I always play attacking football and we must try to reach important targets in the season.
“I am sure that, with the players we have in this moment in the squad, and bringing maybe another four or five in, we are going to have a strong team.” (via BBC)
Furthermore, West Ham are allegedly looking to reunite the former Manchester City manager with Yaya Toure, who the Cityzens released from his contract after the Premier League season ended.
The Ivorian is now a free agent, but he is not ready to retire just yet, as he looks for opportunities to continue his playing days in the Premier League. Therefore, it is thought both the player and the manager are keen on reuniting, since they spent their best days together at Manchester City.
What do you think? Should West Ham reunite Pellegrini and Yaya Toure?
