Manuel Pellegrini posts picture after first day of training and West Ham fans react

West Ham United are back in pre-season training with new manager Manuel Pellegrini.

The former coach of Manchester City, Chilean Manuel Pellegrini (L), arrives for the draw of the Copa Sudamericana football tournament, in Santiago, on July 12, 2016.

West Ham United replaced David Moyes with Manuel Pellegrini this summer as they look to go in a different direction.

Hammers co-owner David Gold told talkSPORT he and fellow co-owner David Sullivan will give Pellegrini unprecedented backing in the transfer market.

Every Love Island contestant if they were an England player - World Cup!

And that is just what West Ham fans want to see after what they feel has been a lack of ambition and broken promises since the big move to the London Stadium two years ago.

West Ham United owners David Sullivan and David Gold look on prior to the Premier League match between Burnley and West Ham United at Turf Moor on May 21, 2017 in Burnley, England.

West Ham returned for pre-season this week and headed straight to their Swiss training base.

Pellegrini oversaw his first training session as Hammers boss at Sportplatz Ri-AU, the home of Swiss 3 Liga club FC Bad Ragaz.

Among those taking part were summer signings Ryan Fredericks and Issa Diop, who are starting their West Ham careers after joining from Fulham and Toulouse respectively while goalkeeper Lukas Fabianski will not join up with his new side for a while yet after taking part in the World Cup with Poland.

West Ham fans are used to having Gold, vice-chairman Karren Brady and Sullivan's sons Dave and Jack discussing club affairs on Twitter over the years but not their manager.

Well that looks like it is about to change as their new Chilean boss is on the social networking site.

"First training day with West Ham United," Pellegrini posted with a picture. 

And West Ham fans have been reacting with their famous humour with everything from quips about transfers to photoshopped images showing transfer target Felipe Anderson hiding in the bushes.
