West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini says his side can continue to improve under his stewardship as he tries to take them to the next level. The Hammers finished 10th last season in what was Pellegrini’s first in charge of the club. The Chilean had to deal with a number of injuries but his side recovered from a slow start to finish inside the top half. In an attempt to improve his team, Pellegrini has signed Sebastien Haller, Pablo Fornals, Roberto and David Martin and the former Manchester City boss is confident his team will improve on last year’s performance.
He told the club’s official website: “Of course, this is my second season and I hope we are going to improve what we did last year. I think that last season we grew a very big step, especially the relationship between the fans, the stadium and the team, and I think that is absolutely linked with the way we play. “I hope we will have the same support from the fans.
We always have 60,000 people behind our team every time we play here at London Stadium. I hope that we can have a brilliant season and they can enjoy it.” West Ham still have time to add one or two players to their squad and Pellegrini has refused to rule out any extra additions. He added: “We will see during the week. I think that I have never seen a team which has so many players [linked to it]. Every player that has the option to change club, I think West Ham wants, but most of them are not true! “I will analyse with [director of football] Mario Husillos and the owner [David Sullivan] and we will decide this week what we must work on.”
