West Ham Sack Manuel Pellegrini After Leicester LossFeatured, Latest News, Sports Saturday, December 28th, 2019
(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Manuel Pellegrini’s 18-month reign as West Ham United manager has ended on Saturday as the Chilean was sacked shortly after his side’s 2-1 home defeat by Leicester City in the Premier League.
The defeat left West Ham fourth from bottom, just one point above the relegation zone after a dreadful run of form.
Former Manchester City title-winning manager Pellegrini, who steered the team into the top four earlier in the season, had already given his post-match news conference at the London Stadium and had not hinted at what was about to follow around 15 minutes later.
West Ham broke the news in a statement on its website.
