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
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.
