Breaking: Manuel Pellegrini confirmed as West Ham United new manager

West Ham United have confirmed the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager. The deal is worth up to £7 million-a-year including bonuses.. The former Villarreal, Real Madrid, Malaga and Manchester City manager has signed a three-year contract at the London Stadium after leaving Chinese Super League club Hebei China Fortune. The 64-year-old Chilean will be the highest-paid manager in West Ham’s history. “I am delighted to welcome Manuel Pellegrini to West Ham United. He is one of the world’s most respected football coaches and we look forward to working with him," joint-chairman David Sullivan told the club's official website. Pellegrini has been managing in China for the last two years, since leaving City at the end of the 2015-16 season. During his three years at City, Pellegrini won the Premier League in 2013-14 season, a success to go with a strong track record earlier in his career.
