Several West Ham United fans have been left fuming with comments made by manager Manuel Pellegrini following their 3-1 defeat against Arsenal on Monday.
When taking part in his post-match media interviews, the Chilean claimed that he is “not worried about relegation” (via BBC Sport).
Should West Ham sign Asmir Begovic?
Incidentally they take on Southampton, the team currently occupying the final position in the relegation zone, at the weekend in what looks like a huge match at St Mary’s.
Pellegrini is thought to be under pressure at the London Stadium with the Express reporting that he could be sacked if they drop into the bottom three.
The comments he made about not fearing relegation haven’t gone down well with most Hammers fans, with some suggesting that he should lose his job purely because of what he said.
Here is how some West Ham supporters reacted on Twitter after seeing Pellegrini’s post match comments…
He didn’t say this, surely. If he did, this is a sackable offence on its own

Well we are and you should be too, but whether you are worried or not you still have to go as you are tactically inept and with you in charge relegation sadly can not be avoided.
