Pellegrini parts company with West Ham

WEST HAM UNITED have announced that manager, Manuel Pellegrini has left the club with immediate effect.

In a statement published on the Hammers official website, Joint-Chairmen, David Sullivan and David Gold, expressed their thanks to the Chilean for his efforts during eighteen months with the east Londoners.

Mr Sullivan continued: “It is with great disappointment that we’ve had to make this decision. Manuel is a gentleman and it has been a real pleasure to work with someone of his calibre.

“However, it has become clear that a change is required to get the Club back on track in line with our ambitions this season. We felt it was necessary to act now in order to give the new manager as much time as possible to try and achieve that goal.”
