Manuel Pellegrini: West Ham boss wants to make it to 75 - BBC Sport

Manuel Pellegrini won the 2014 Premier League with Manchester City

Manuel Pellegrini, manager of West Ham, is looking for another decade of management and is 75 years old.

Pellegrini's men host the oldest Premier League coach on Saturday as 71-year-old Roy Hodgson brings the Crystal Palace to London Stadium.

"I hope to work in my seventies, maybe even over seventy," said 65-year-old Pellegrini.

"I'd rather be 10 years younger, but you can continue working the same way if you're in good shape and hungry."

The Hammers boss is the fourth oldest in the division behind Hodgson, Neil Warnock (70) of Cardiff and Claudio Ranieri (67), Fulham manager.

Chilean Pellegrini, who began his career at the Universidad de Chile in 1988, led Manchester City to the title of Premier League in 2014.

"The more experience you have in this profession, the easier it is to analyze the game," he added.
