West Ham United are looking increasingly likely to appoint Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager, and Irons fans are already excited to see Javier Hernandez, who earns £140,000-a-week according to the Daily Mail, working under the Chilean.
The east London outfit announced last week that David Moyes wasn’t going to be kept on following the expiry of his contract, and now they look set to get the man who won the Premier League title with Manchester City in 2014.
Sergio Aguero shone under the tutelage of his fellow South American back then, and the London Stadium faithful will hope that the 64-year-old can help Chicharito improve too, following a disappointing debut campaign in which he often found himself behind Marko Arnautovic in the centre-forward pecking order, potentially bringing his future into doubt.
West Ham supporters, who believe on Twitter that a recently-relegated Premier League star would also shine under Pellegrini, were quick to have their say on the potential link-up between the duo via social media, and while one said “I think Chich will be reborn under Pellegrini”, another said “he could be our Aguero”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Absolutely spot on Dave I’m over the moon that we could be getting a top class manager in pellegrini just hoping Hernandez will stay as under the right manager he could get 15 -20 goals which I think arnautovic could easily get as well next season mate ⚒⚒

Pellegrini is a great addition; great step forward when you look at how Moyes set up week in week out. Hernandez likely to stay under Pellegrini and actually play every game. This manager will improve us and tactically is spot on. Very happy with him being appointed if comes off.

I agree mate. Pellegrini would’nt have been my first choice, but I am a damn sight more positive about this than when they appointed Moyes and am very hopeful for the future. Hope he can secure @manulanzini and @CH14_ for next Season now….and actually play Chicharito…

Pellegrini IMO will help players like Lanzini flourish in more attacking style & Chicharito if stays & play entertaining footy Im Excited⚒ https://t.co/gzfmd2oIWV

No reason why chicharito will not stay surely. Yes pellegrini teams defend from attack down so he will have to actually run but he could be our Aguero. Could get slot of cheap goals #coyi
