West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini calm over sack rumours

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has dismissed claims he's the new favourite for the sack.

But Pellegrini says he is “not under pressure".

Before hosting Arsenal on Monday, the former Manchester City boss insisted: “I am not under pressure. I am under my pressure from the first game of the season to the last game of the season.

“The pressure doesn't link with the results. The pressure for me is in every game, to do it better, play well and win the game.

“You do not need to be in a bad position, without a win in so many games, to start to feel the pressure. Pressure is there always."
