Is is exactly a year since Manuel Pellegrini was appointed West Ham United boss.

The Chilean became the 17th full-time boss in the Hammers’ 124-year history when he took charge on 22 May 2018, becoming the first Premier League-winning manager and first South American to fill the coveted role.

Pellegrini's first season in charge brought many highlights, and we remember some of the best moments of his campaign in our gallery above.
