West Ham United announced on Twitter that Manuel Pellegrini has signed a three-year contract with the Hammers worth £10 million a year.
The Chilean has previously managed in the Premier League with Manchester City where he won one Premier League title, 2 League Cups, and four Premier League manager of the month awards in three years at the club, and has also managed Villarreal, Real Madrid, and Malaga in La Liga.
Speaking in an interview on the club’s official site the 64-year-old 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. Every time you have a meeting you have feelings about whether it was a good meeting, or a bad meeting and I had the meeting with him (David Sullivan), just talking about football and talking about West Ham. We agreed on a lot of things he wants for this Club in the way I think a football club must be managed, so we have a lot of common ideas.”
