Former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini edges closer to West Ham job after leaving Hebei China Fortune

Hebei made the announcement on social media after Pellegrini guided the team to a 2-1 win over Chongqing Lifan

By Jake Polden

Manuel Pellegrini has left Chinese Super League outfit Hebei China Fortune, the club confirmed on Saturday, paving the way for the former Manchester City boss to take over at West Ham.

Hebei made the announcement on social media after Pellegrini guided the team to a 2-1 win over Chongqing Lifan in the club's final league match before a two-month break for the World Cup.

The statement read: "After amicable discussions with Mr Pellegrini, we have reached a mutual agreement.

"As of May 20, Mr Pellegrini will no longer work as the head coach of Hebei China Fortune Football Club.

"We sincerely thank Mr Pellegrini for his contribution to the club and we wish him all the best for the future."

If Arnie leaves I get the feeling that Pell might have his eye on 22 year old Uruguayan striker Maxi Gomez at Celta Vigo in Spain.

One in Two career average scoring goals...his release clause is around 40m euros too

I am bloody ancient and able to remember the revolution at the club under Ron Greenwood. I am getting those self same feelings. Things are changing again which will benefit all true West Ham fans. Just get behind the team through these early changes and we will all benefit,
Onwards and upwards with Pelle.

Need to stick the fucker in a time capsule to keep him fresh for another 10 years.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Completely agree, Russ.

It's beats the days of "Well, West Ham have never really done that well, dont know what they're complaining about"

Redknapp used to say that, or words to that effect.

Its ok supporters saying that, but not your fucking manager!

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
I just love it when he says in interviews "We must start to think and act like a big club". Can't recall any other manager saying that.

Good stuff, Jake.

Best I've felt about the club for a long time. We're in very good hands with this manager, with another summer under his belt and a bit of luck with injuries, next year should be very exciting.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
i always thought that EL Pell is the beeez kneeez and would improve us beyond our wildest dreams and is proving to be the case.
regarding Arnie, and if/when he leaves the maesteo will have a diop priced striker that none of us have ever heard of to slot in and do the business for us.
that is the mark of a great manager and make no mistake, El Pell is a great manager, despite what those on these forums said that he was only here for a last payday, he has already proved that he is nothing of the sort. this bloke, like the greats like fergie, love him or hate him, lives for the game and has probably forgotten more about football than many so-called "good " managers will ever know.
i've always been a big fan of the wonderful Johnny Lyall, but i can see EL Pell surpassing him as WHU manager.

in EL Pell i trust.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
A few players have said that Pellegrini tells them to think like a big team whoever we are playing. That sort of mentality is what we want at our club.

Even when we lost our first 4 matches he was still talking about making up the points we have lost rather than talking about the importance of getting a win to move out of trouble.

Even yesterday when playing a big 6 team most manager's would pack the midfield but he started with 4 attacking players with the intent of winning the game.

Of course we will have bad games but with Pelle in charge I have more confidence we are heading in the right direction.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
I love the way that Pellegrini refuses to get carried away.

When Anderson was being lauded by the media a month ago he refused to get caught up, said he’s playing well but needs to work on a few things.

Same again with Rice yesterday. He stayed in control of his emotions and said Rice is doing okay but he has to maintain his performance and continue to improve.

Definitely a sign of someone who is in complete control and has the respect of the dressing room. Regardless of what happens with Arnie, I think we all have confidence in Pellegrini to find a solution to keep us moving forward,

Shame the best picture that site can up with is Allardyce with a cold sore!!!!

Interesting that many seemed to think Bonzo wasn't a good manager but his win rate is third highest.

mallard 1:16 Sun Jan 13
Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Didn’t realise Bonzo was up there, I suppose a lot of his wins were during two promotion campaigns and the FA Cup run.

Nice to see Sir Trev leading the way!

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Where on earth do you get 56% from?

In league games it's 41% and league and cup games it's 46%. Even if for some reason you included all the pre-season friendlies it's just 53%.
