According to a report from the Telegraph, the West Ham board fear that Manuel Pellegrini does not accept the seriousness of the Hammers’ current situation.

The east London outfit are currently embroiled in a real relegation scrap. Quite amazing considering the fact that they occupied third spot earlier on in the campaign.

West Ham are in the midst of a horrendous run of form. Since beating Manchester United 2-0 at the end of September, they have lost six and drawn two of their last eight games in all competitions.

And there is a real concern that Manuel Pellegrini has lost the dressing room at the London Stadium.

More so, and worryingly for the east London outfit, the Chilean has been rather nonchalant in his recent press conferences.

 

The Hammers are in dire straits. But according to the Telegraph, the West Ham board fear that Pellegrini doesn’t fully grasp the severity of the situation.

And if that is the case, the Hammers are in real trouble.

It seems like now is the perfect time for a change.

Eddie Howe, Rafa Benitez and Sean Dyche have all been mentioned as potential successors to Pellegrini. And as things stand, most West Ham fans would prefer any one of those names in place of the Chilean.
