West Ham are considering the future of manager Manuel Pellegrini following their poor string of results, according to a report which was published by The Telegraph. 

The Hammers dreadful run of form continued last weekend as they slumped to a 3-2 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur.

Many West Ham fans now do not believe that Pellegrini is the best man to lead the club going forward.

The East Londoners are currently just three points above 18th place Norwich City and if their poor string of results continues, they could soon be in the relegation zone.

The Hammers have not won a match since they defeated Manchester United at home on September 22.

Big things were expected from Pellegrini when he was appointed to lead the club during the summer of 2018.

However, he has failed to bring any noticeable change to the team and based on how things are currently going, the club will probably not be challenging for European football this season.

Pellegrini has 19 months remaining on his current contract.

West Ham have a history of allowing managers to see out their contracts before opting for a change of leadership. They will likely give the South American as much time as possible to succeed in order to avoid a huge payout.

It is likely that they will only sack him if they end up wallowing deeply into the relegation zone. If Pellegrini does get sacked, Rafa Benitez may be a good choice to succeed him.
