With all things considered, West Ham United have had a rather successful campaign and one that the Hammers can certainly build upon.
Although there will be some that feel the club could have finished higher than tenth in the Premier League, it is a far cry from what they have been experiencing in the past few seasons.
And, one man to thank for the vast improvements at the London Stadium is Manuel Pellegrini.
A natural winner, the arrival of the Chilean was lauded as a huge coup for West Ham last summer when he took charge and he certainly made his mark on the east London outfit as the season went on.
Sure, a slow start was worrying and had many concerned in the stands about just what the future held for the Hammers under his guidance, however, the experienced head managed to get things rolling and turned their fortunes around.
This summer is likely going to be another huge one for the Irons and it will need to be if they are to continue their ascent up the Premier League ladder, however, they may have been handed some encouraging news already.
The Daily Mail are claiming that Pellegrini has no intention of leaving West Ham this summer, should Sevilla or Barcelona come knocking at the door for his services, after reports in his homeland (via Daily Mail) suggested otherwise.
The 65-year-old is thought to be happy in the capital and is pleased with how the first season went and wants to use that as his starting point in his efforts to take the club to the next level.
It would always be difficult for a manager to turn down any advances from the likes of Barcelona and Sevilla, but it appears Pellegrini is not quite ready to end his second spell in England just yet and that can only be good news for David Gold and David Sullivan.
West Ham fans, are you pleased Pellegrini has no intentions to quit? Let us know your thoughts below!
