Former Hammers manager Sam Allardyce has called for the West Ham owners to back new boss Pellegrini in the transfer market with big funds to get the best players.
Big Sam told talkSPORT: yesterday “I am not sure if David Sullivan and David Gold realise that he will want the best players to come to the club.
“If West Ham wants to grow, they have to give their manager a bit of leeway and certainly give him in the early stages a couple of big signings that they didn’t expect.
“Try and find the funds and the money to go with it. Because you have a lot of dissatisfied West Ham fans with that stadium and I think the only way you make that stadium work is by putting a top team on the pitch.
“The West Ham fans will not worry about the stadium then – they will just go ahead and support the team.”
