The Chilean has succeeded with a variety of budgets and his attacking style should help to soothe the disquiet at West Ham
West Ham United may just have pulled off the summer’s managerial coup by appointing Manuel Pellegrini, affectionately known as This Charming Man.
The Chilean’s sobriquet is taken from a Smiths song and was given by adoring Manchester City fans during the success-soaked years of 2013-16. Pellegrini was, indeed, the epitome of a genteel presence, never resorting to bitterness or sniping. More importantly, though, he combined this human quality with the hard edge required to be a winner.
Pellegrini can be billed as the antithesis of David Moyes and the Scot’s predecessor-but-one, Sam AllardyceContinue reading...

• Chilean agrees £7m-a-year deal after talks with David Sullivan
• Pellegrini will be given full control of transfers at London club
West Ham United have appointed Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager after concluding negotiations late on Monday night.
Pellegrini has signed a three-year deal worth up to £7m a year after meeting with David Sullivan, the co-owner, who had promised that the club would make a “high-calibre” appointment after parting company with David Moyes last week.
Newcastle United’s Rafael Benítez was high on the London Stadium club’s four-man shortlist and Sullivan also interviewed Shakhtar Donetsk’s Paulo Fonseca last Monday. Benítez’s contract contained a £6m release clause, however, and Fonseca ended up agreeing a new deal with Shakhtar. Unai Emery, who is set to join Arsenal, proved elusive after leaving Paris Saint-Germain and that made Pellegrini the frontrunner to replace Moyes.Continue reading...

• West Ham seriously considering paying £6m release clause
• Newcastle manager is their first choice to replace David Moyes
West Ham are ready to make a formal approach for Rafael Benítez and are giving serious consideration to triggering the £6m release clause in the Newcastle United manager’s contract.
Benítez is the first choice to replace David Moyes but West Ham want to keep their options open and retain a strong interest in Manuel Pellegrini. While they have denied a report in Chile claiming that the former Manchester City coach is set to be unveiled in London, they want to speak to him. Newcastle’s manager, however, remains West Ham’s No 1 choice and there is increasing concern on Tyneside that Benítez will move if he receives a satisfactory offer.Continue reading...
