West Ham appoints new director of football

13 Jun 2018, 14:10

West Ham has appointed Mario Husillos as their new director of football.

The 59-year-old has agreed to join the Premier League club on a three-year deal to reunite with manager Manuel Pellegrini, having worked with the Chilean at Malaga.  Malaga famously reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League in the 2012-13 season under Pellegrini, with Husillos having overseen an expensive refit of the squad bankrolled by president Abdullah ben Nasser Al Thani.

"I am very excited. West Ham United is a club with huge ambition. The challenge to help deliver that ambition is what really attracted me to the role," Husillos told the club's website.

However, the club has struggled to hit those heights in more recent years while under more stringent financial controls, and they were relegated from LaLiga this season.
