Husillos may be on way back to Spain


Mario Husillos looks to be set for a West Ham departure in the summer after a series of  bad buys since becoming director of football at the club.

His decision to bring in Roberto in particular, and the storm of criticism which has followed, is believed to have prompted him to consider his future.

And it although it was rumoured earlier in the year that he could be sacked CandH has discovered through contacts in Spain that he is being head hunted by two or three La Liga clubs and is now believed ready to move on.

The Hammers would definitely move to replace him with another director of football and possibly at the head of their list would be Bordeaux ‘s head of recruitment Eduardo Macia.

The 45 year old has been technical adviser, and  personal assistant to Valencia’s  president earlier in his career and has since held similar positions at Liverpool, Olympiacos, Fiorentina, Real Betis and Leicester City.

    No surprise, clearly his performance is below expectations, however why wait until summer if his contract is until 2020, let him go now and get someone in before the January window….

    he has not been so succesful at west ham so no great loss to us
    very strange that when we announced pellegrini and him as our new manager partners fans from malaga were sending us a lot of messages predicting us to be relegated
    we might have known then or even guessed it would come to haunt us lol
    especially as we know how lucky we are [ not ]
    great at chelsea though looked like a new team
