His achievements at Alaves

Alaves decided to sack Jose Bordalas and appoint Pellegrino as their new manager last summer despite the fact that they won the Segunda Division title, as they believed they had more chance of a successful season under the Argentine.

It certainly proved to be the case as the former Liverpool defender led the La Liga outfit to a victory against Barcelona in the opening weeks of the season, a ninth-place finish despite only having the 15th-highest budget in the division according to uMAXit, and a place in the final of the Copa Del Rey.
