West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has risked the wrath of the Hammers faithful by praising how his clubs owners run the East London club and their decision to swap the Boleyn Ground for the London Stadium.
Club owners David Sullivan and David Gold are hugely unpopular with the vast majority of West Ham’s support, but Pellegrini reckons his paymasters are plotting the correct course for The Irons.
“West Ham is in the correct way, from the ambition of the owners, to having a new and bigger stadium to grow the club, to making improvements to the training ground here at Rush Green,” Pellegrini told the press ahead of his sides crunch Premier League fixture away to Everton.
The Hammers’ controversial board had finally looked to have gotten things right this summer when they handed made former Manchester City boss Pellegrini one of the highest paid managers in the Premier League and spent close to £100 million on new players.
However, West Ham have started the season off in horrific fashion losing all four of their opening league fixtures, and with Chelsea, Spurs, and Manchester United coming up shortly after their trip to Merseyside things don’t show any obvious sign of getting better any time soon either.
