West Ham boss Pellegrini denies being angry over leaks

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has rubbished claims he's upset over team leaks.

Pellegrini says reports he is angry about his West Ham starting XI being leaked are false.

"First of all, it is not true – it is a lie. I am not angry about that," said Pellegrini.

"Not aware (of it) because normally in every team I manage before, the day before the game I work with set-pieces.

"All the players know the day before – who will play, who will not play.

"So many players can talk with other players. I am not keeping the starting 11 until three or four hours before the game.

"There are a lot of reasons why some people can know the team."
