Pellegrini ready to get stuck in at West Ham

Manuel Pellegrini West Ham Premier League

West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini is relishing the opportunity to re-build the Premier League outfit into an exciting football team.

The Chilean took over at the Irons this week, signing a three-year contract, and is already busy making decisions behind the scenes in terms of shaping his backroom staff and identifying players to bring in.

The former Manchester City boss is motivated to make a positive impact at the club and eager to help them improve their performance in the Premier League this past season. The Hammers finished 13th in the standings, managing only 42 points.

“Taking it game by game and with the players taking on and practising my ideas, I think we are going to be a good football team,” Pellegrini told the club’s official website.

“We are going to start working immediately, first of all, to prepare a good pre-season which is very important.

“After that, we will try to finish the squad as soon as we can, but I think we must be patient to find the right players with the amount of money that this club will spend this season.

“So, we need to work with every day from now until the start of the season, because the time is a little bit short. But we have time and I am confident that, with hard work, we have enough time to build this squad.”
