A number of West Ham United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Daily Mirror suggesting that the Hammers could target Rafa Benitez.
Manuel Pellegrini looks to have plenty of work to do after the international break. The Irons will have gone more than two months without a win by the time they face Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
They sit just two places above the relegation zone. And it appears that the West Ham fans are making plans in case they do decide to replace the Chilean in the near future.
The Daily Mirror reports that the club want to have another go at trying to appoint Benitez. The Spaniard looked set to take charge of the Hammers before his move to Real Madrid.
The Mirror notes that Benitez would be interested in speaking to West Ham if an opportunity did come up in the near future. He has spent the last few months in China with Dalian Yifang.
There has been something of a mixed response to the reports from the West Ham fans. It has been suggested that the board are a bigger problem than Pellegrini and thus, Benitez is likely to also struggle.
However, there are plenty who would clearly like to see Benitez move to the London Stadium. They believe that he is exactly the right man to take the side forward, and they are hoping that a change is in the offing.
Here is what some of the West Ham supporters make of the reports…
Lurching from one bad appointment to another . I know Benitez is proven but where’s the long term strategy at this club. Constant fire fighting…… pic.twitter.com/trgebatw5G

We can change the manager a thousand times, it wont make any difference. No investment, no decent new players, no structure…no team.
