West Ham fans split over Pellegrini quotes

West Ham United fans have had a mixed reaction to Manuel Pellegrini’s assessment of their Premier League season.

The Hammers’ Twitter account posted a tweet quoting the manager on Monday, with Pellegrini saying: “For the first season, to finish in the top 10 is not bad. We have improved in points, goals scored and goals conceded. So compared with the last season we have grown a step.”

The east London club ultimately finished 10th after a fine late run of form which saw them win three games on the bounce, against bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur – becoming the first away team to win at their new stadium – Southampton and Watford.

They were, however, unable to mount a sustained challenge for a top-seven finish which, after Manchester City’s FA Cup victory, would have seen them qualify for the Europa League. Nuno Espirito Santo’s impressive Wolves side took the ‘best of the rest’ honour instead.

And fans have been left split on the Chilean’s assessment, as they look to push on again in the 2019-20 season, and potentially break into the top seven.
