West Ham United appoint Mario Husillos as their new director of football to work with Manuel Pellegrini


The Hammers have added to their backroom staff

West Ham have announced the appointment of Mario Husillos as their new director of football.

The 59-year-old will link up once more with Manuel Pellegrini, who was appointed as the Hammers’ new manager last month.

The duo previously operated in similar roles together at Malaga.

West Ham are looking to build a management structure that can help them avoid the sort of trouble which led to a fight against Premier League relegation for much of last season.

Husillos has signed a three-year deal at the London Stadium.

Co-owner David Sullivan is pleased to have the Argentinian on board.

“He has worked in six or seven different countries and it’s that global experience we hope will serve us well as we scout the world to bring West Ham United some exciting new talent,” Sullivan said.

“He is also highly experienced at helping young players fulfil their potential and we believe we have an exciting crop of emerging players here.”
