Newly appointed West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini has vowed to bring entertaining attacking football to the London Stadium next season, something that is bound to delight the clubs fanbase.
The Hammers support are notoriously demanding and expect their team to play the ‘West Ham way,’ which basically equates to possession based attacking football.
However, in all honesty it’s been a long time since the club’s long suffering support have seen anything resembling this stye of play being played on a regular basis.
West Ham’s new £7 million-a-year manager Pellegrini does seem a good fit in this regard though, and he has revealed that he will stick to the footballing principles that have brought him success in the past.
“I’m very happy because I return to a league that, for me, and I always say the same thing, is the best league in the world, and especially because I come here to West Ham because every time I spoke with the owner mister Sullivan, I always had the feeling that he wants me.’’ Pellegrini said.
“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 excited about this project. My mentality is always to have a winning mentality and I will hope that I can repeat here what I did with all my clubs here in Europe, where I have always arrived in European competition.”
This will be Pellegrini’s second stint in the Premier League, having previously managed Manchester City between 2013-2016, where he won the Premier League title and two EFL Cups.
Proud and motivated to assume this new challenge at @WestHamUtd and to be back at @premierleague .
