Pellegrini/Husillos pay off revealed

West Ham paid out just £3.5m in compensation for former manager Manuel Pellegrini and director of football Mario Husillos, that sum is thought to include payouts for both their sons who acted as scouts for the Hammers during their reign.

Pellegrini and Husillos were sacked on 28th December 2019 with around 18 months remaining of their contracts.

Manuel was appointed in May 2018 on a three-year deal with Mario appointed in June the same year in a contract thought to end in June 2021.

Pellegrini was reported to have been on £8m per year at West Ham while Hussillos was said to be on close to £1m per season in his role as director of football.

If those reports are to be believed that the Hammers could have forked out a further £13.5m in wages so it is incredible to see that just £3.5m was paid.

The compensation figures were revealed in West Ham financial accounts for last season published today which say ‘Termination payments totalling £3.5m were made during the year following the change of first-team management and scouting staff’

  1. Not bad for a bunch of clowns……..wonder if they were embarrassed?

  2. They should be embarrassed, but my bet is they’re not.

    Also….. I don’t like the line…. “Termination payments totalling £3.5m were made during the yea”…. makes me think that the same statement will be in this year’s accounts with a full year of pay off for the remainder of their contracts

  3. Just 3.5 million. That’s terrible. How will they ever survive on a paltry amount like that.

  4. Football is the only sector where people who fail on a spectatulr level, still get rewarded. It’s disgraceful, disgusting and it reflects badly on a game that is slowly dwindling season by season. Long gone are the days where one can walk with ones head held high after trying their very best. Thankfully – we now have a real football manager at the helm and the sooner he and our star players get nailed down to longerm term contracts, the better for all. Football has been ruined by business and short of always watching out for the hammers results and latest news, I truly believe a complete overhaul of the system come into effect. Will never happen of course – look at how Blatter and Platini got away with their BS over the years.
