Manuel Pellegrini is back in the Premier League after being hired as manager of West Ham.

The London club announced the arrival of the former Manchester City coach on Tuesday on a three-year contract as the replacement for David Moyes.

Pellegrini won the Premier League and the League Cup in his three years at City before being replaced by Pep Guardiola in 2016. The 64-year-old Chilean has spent the last two years in China with Hebei China Fortune.

He previously managed Villarreal, Real Madrid and Malaga in the Spanish Primera Liga.

West Ham decided not to renew the contract of Moyes, who stabilised the club in his six months in charge from November and led them to a 13th-place finish in the Premier League.
