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."

Great news, one of the best managerial appointments we have ever made.

Leagues above the likes of Allardyce, Moyes, Grant etc.

He had a good record at getting Villareal and Malaga to punch above their weight so lets hope he can do the same with us.

Welcome, Mr Pellegrini.

By far the most decorated manager in our history.

I'm IN.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
I witnessed the whole Lyall era, along with the dying embers of the Greenwood era, the two best managers in our entire history.

The only complaint I would have about Lyall is the fact that he hung on too long to some players who should have been outed earlier, as he ‘felt loyalty towards them and their families.’

I hope Pelle experiences similar success with us, but, unlike Lyall, with a little more ruthlessness when a player can no longer deliver.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
I remember the stick John Lyall got when we went down in 89...3 years after we almost won the damn thing.

Considering his record up until then - he deserved better for putting together 2 of the most exciting WH teams I had the pleasure of watching in my life.

The Cearns were notorious for being tight fisted and I have no doubt were already thinking of cashing in during that golden season long before both Cottee and Frankie were sold less than 2 years later.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
If he joins, as an avid examiner of gift equines' mouths, I'm going to wonder if he's been conned into working under conditions he'll rapidly find intolerable.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
I'm ok with Pellegrini, if it comes off.

BUT, it does not mean a thing who we appoint if there aren't BIG funds available.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Got to echo what others have said - if Manuel is even close to the man that Lyall was then we'll have ourselves a real football man, a club man and a true gent.

I have no idea whether he will be all of those things, but I had a lot of time for him at City - thought he dealt with the demands of that job with great dignity.

My gut feeling is that he'll be here for two years and then he'll fall out with one, or more, of the board.

But let's hope that does not happen.

Old is when if you keel over from a heart attack no one says ‘so sad, he was so young’. 64 is hardly departing too soon.

"West Ham to offer Manuel Pellegrini a three-year deal but face paying 5m to release him from Hebei China Fortune"...



...and another 5m 30 minutes later...

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Old = older than me.

Therefore, 64 IS old, but only just.
