West Ham assigned Manuel Pellergrini as new manager

West Ham declared former Real Madrid and Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager on Tuesday, replacing David Moyes at the helm of the Premier League club.
The 64-year-old Chilean left his role with Hebei China Fortune over the weekend and flew to London for talks. The Hammers opted not to keep Moyes on after the Scot's short-term contract ended following the final game of the Premier League season 3-1 win over his former side Everton that saw them finish 13th. Joint chairman David Sullivan hailed Pellegrini's track record of winning the Premier League title with City as crucial to his chances of ushering in a new era of success at the London Stadium.
"I am delighted to welcome Manuel Pellegrini to West Ham United," Sullivan said on the club's website. "He is one of the world's most respected football coaches and we look forward to working with him. "It was important that we appointed someone with knowledge and experience of the Premier League, who already has an understanding, not only of the teams and players we face, but for West Ham United and our ambitions.
