West Ham boss Pellegrini grants squad time off amid crisis

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has granted his floundering squad days off this week.

The Sun says the Hammers are the only team in the Premier League without a point but Manuel Pellegrini has given his squad time off.

Pellegrini is back in Chile himself to sort personal matters, which was arranged before his team's disastrous start to the campaign.

Marko Arnautovic, Lukasz Fabianski, Robert Snodgrass and Andriy Yarmolenko are among the first-team players on international duty but the rest are off until tomorrow.

Pellegrini is also set to return by then after his trip to South America.

West Ham players were criticised last season for going to Miami after losing to Burnley - but returned to beat Southampton in their next game.
