Described as both ‘necessary’ and a ‘disappointment’ in equal measure (per the club’s official website in December) at the time by David Sullivan, West Ham United’s decision to sack manager Manuel Pellegrini was questioned by a number of supporters on Twitter last night.
Having lost to Manchester City at home, the Irons are without a win in their last five games and trail Aston Villa by a point as they sit in the Premier League’s bottom three, leaving David Moyes in a difficult position. Indeed, the Scotsman has games against Liverpool, Southampton, Wolves, Arsenal and Tottenham coming up, making the next few weeks a daunting period when it comes to trying to ensure safety.
While losing to City is by no means a shock, Football.London’s Sam Inkersole hinted at a worrying performance for those clad in claret and blue, with plenty of supporters online lamenting the club’s decision to bring Moyes back to the club after sacking Pellegrini.
Did West Ham sack Manuel Pellegrini too quickly?
With that in mind, here’s a look at what a section of the support were saying.
In hindsight, it was a mistake sacking Pellegrini
