Mario Husillos arrives as director of football at West Ham

The Hammers have announced Argentinian has signed a three-year deal at the London Stadium.

Mario Husillos has been appointed as West Ham’s director of football as he links up once again with new Irons boss Manuel Pellegrini.

The Premier League club announced the appointment of Husillos on Wednesday morning, with the Argentinian signing a three-year deal at the London Stadium.

The 59-year-old will work alongside Pellegrini, who was confirmed as David Moyes’ replacement last month, the pair having operated in similar roles together at Malaga.

Husillos is looking forward to re-establishing his working relationship with Pellegrini as they look to improve the fortunes of West Ham.

“I am very excited,” he said.

“West Ham United is a club with huge ambition. The challenge to help deliver that ambition is what really attracted me to the role.

“I know the manager well and know he wants to deliver an exciting brand of attacking football. It will be my job to supply him with the tools to do just that.”

“I am very much looking forward to working with Manuel Pellegrini again. We had great success together at Malaga, reaching the Champions League, and he is someone that I have huge respect for.”

West Ham are looking to build a management structure that can help them avoid the sort of troubles which led to a fight against Premier League relegation for much of last season.

It has been unclear in recent seasons who has been responsible for recruiting new players, with co-owner David Sullivan often taking the initiative on such matters.

But Sullivan is pleased to have someone with the experience of Husillos on board.

“He has worked in six or seven different countries and it’s that global experience we hope will serve us well as we scout the world to bring West Ham United some exciting new talent,” he said.

“He is also highly experienced at helping young players fulfil their potential and we believe we have an exciting crop of emerging players here.”
