West Ham fans are once again bashing their owners, after a report claimed they are already at odds with Manuel Pellegrini.
When Pellegrini joined West Ham earlier this summer, fans were delighted they finally had a manager who they didn’t see as a “yes man”, and a manager that would bring the type of football they expect to see from their side.
The arrival of Pellegrini made many fans think differently about the club’s owners, who would have almost certainly had to commit to loosening the purse strings to pull in a manager with the Chilean’s CV.
It seems that may not be the case though, as a report from the Mirror claims the veteran manager is already “at odds” with the club’s hierarchy.
According to the Mirror report, Pellegrini has raised concerns about transfer spending, as several of his requests for new signings have been knocked back.
“The challenge with West Ham is spectacular. Now I will force the owners to form a competitive team because they are rich but careful with money,” said Pellegrini.
“We are trying to get the owner to loosen up to make an important investment and thus bring the players we need. The idea is to sign a great figure.”
Fans are now fearing the worst though, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
What a surprise
