West Ham rule out 7m pounds sacking of under-pressure Pellegrini

West Ham have ruled out the possibility of sacking Manuel Pellegrini after only four EPL matches in charge,.

The Chilean was appointed as David Moyes’ successor in the summer but the club have got off to a terrible start to the new campaign.

The Hammers have lost thier first 4 EPL matches of the season, while they scraped through in the cup against AFC Wimbledon after falling behind early on against the League One outfit.

West Ham would have to ‘pay a maximum of 7m pouds in compensation’ if they looked to make a quick change.

Pellegrini signed a 3-year contract worth a reported 5m pounds-a-year in May, while paying off all of the Chilean’s staff would cost upwards of 10m pounds.

The Hammers board have put their full faith in Pellegrini over the transfer window as the club bought 9 new players at a cost of 100m pounds.

A source close to the club said: “The manager has bought a team. He has to make it work. You can’t dump the manager and buy a new team in January.”

Pellegrini is struggling to implement his style of play overnight with the high volume of new arrivals but the source adds that the board are not thinking of changing manager.
