West Ham United may well be soon looking for a new manager as Manuel Pellegrini has overseen an abject run of form since September.
And with Carlo Ancelotti out of work having been sacked by Napoli this week, TalkSport’s Ian Abrahams suggested the 60-year-old as a potential option.
But former Tottenham man Jamie O’Hara wasn’t having any of it, saying: “No chance. West Ham fans are daydreaming. I would say Everton are a bigger club than West Ham.
“If Everton get Ancelotti, it’s a massive coup for them so if West Ham get him… You can’t talk about Ancelotti going to West Ham. As a manager, you’ve got to think big and West Ham ain’t big for him.”
TBR’s View – No rational West Ham fan would expect Ancelotti to come
Abrahams’ suggestion is outlandish; a former Champions League winner isn’t going to sign up for a relegation battle in the Premier League.
West Ham need an innovative, attacking coach who can also tighten them up defensively to get the squad playing to its potential and there are more realistic targets out there than Ancelotti.
It remains to be seen how long Manuel Pellegrini clings onto his job for – the win at Chelsea shows the players are still putting the effort in for him – and this weekend’s trip to Southampton is massive.
