Just like Arsenal’s former coach Unai Emery, Pellegrini also spent 18 months before his sudden departure.
“It is with great disappointment that we’ve had to make this decision,” said joint-chairman David Sullivan.

“We felt it was necessary to act now in order to give the new manager as much time as possible to try and achieve that goal.”

‘I don’t talk about future’ – Pellegrini
West Ham made the announcement within two hours of losing to Leicester.
During the post match conference he was asked if he’s the right man for the job, Pellegrini said: “Of course. I am confident. I have a lot of experience of being in this position.
“When you don’t get the result people talk about you being sacked. For me I only worry about managing games.”
Speaking to BBC, the former West Ham keeper Green revealed that he was not surprised to see Manuel leave
“West Ham have reached that point in the season, much like Everton, where they were close enough to the relegation zone and have made a decision,” said Green, who made 177 Premier League appearances for the Hammers between 2006 and 2011.
“The trick is whether you are able to get that new manager bounce like Watford have.
“That’s certainly what West Ham need right now.”
He also hinted that the former Arsenal and Sevila Unai Emery could be fit for the job.
Green also told BBC that: “Rafael Benitez? He will be expensive. Unai Emery is an obvious shout. I imagine West Ham will have irons in the fire as you would expect every modern day football club to have.
“Is it a fair decision? I think so, yes. He has been there a while, and was talking about shaping the team and having a say in the signings.
“For one reason or another it’s not worked.”
West Ham will welcome Bournemouth who also loose to Brighton on New year’s day.
