Would Manuel Pellegrini appointment hand Joe Hart a West Ham reprieve?

Joe Hart has struggled for West Ham but Pellegrini’s appointment would surely see him interest the Hammers again.

Despite keeping West Ham United in the Premier League it is looking increasingly likely that David Moyes is on his way out of the club. The manager has done a decent job, but it seems that it is not enough to remain in charge. It is being reported by numerous sources, including The Telegraph, that West Ham are set to let him go.

They list several names who could potentially take his place – including Rafa Benitez, Marco Silva and Unai Emery.

However, the Daily Mail have suggested that former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini could be the man to take over from the Scot.

If Pellegrini was to come on board, could it change West Ham’s outlook on goalkeeper Joe Hart.

The England international has spent the season on loan with The Hammers from Manchester City. His career at The Etihad appears over and his move to West Ham was supposed to secure him a place at the World Cup this summer.

If anything, it has done the opposite. A string of indifferent displays soon saw Hart dropped for Spanish keeper Adrian and rightly so.

Such an uninspiring season has seen West Ham seemingly decide that Hart is not in their plans for next season.

But under the guidance of the Chilean at Manchester City the England stopper had perhaps the best years of his career. He was brilliant during his time under Pellegrini’s command and if he becomes the new West Ham manager, perhaps he would consider keeping Hart at the club.

Fans would then have to hope that Pellegrini could manage to bring out the form that Hart once showed when he worked under him at City. Otherwise, West Ham will be regretting keeping Hart on board all over again.
