The philosophy of Pellegrini

West Ham United's manager-in-waiting says he expects his his staff to meet three key criteria.

Manuel Pellegrini, who resigned from his post with China Super League side Hebei Fortune yesterday is expected to fly to London within the next 48 hours in order to ratify his move to West Ham.

And in the following video from the Coaches' Voice channel, the 64-year-old Chilean outlines his three key tenets as manager - which are as follows:

1. Respect - for fellow players, staff, supporters, media etc.
2. Commitment - to the managers plans
3. Performance - full commitment

"Usually the first few days I'm with the players I tell them how I work with a group," explains Pellegrini. "Not just on the pitch but off the pitch too. I understand players who aren't playing can't be happy but my demands of them must be exactly the same."

And in the following short, Pellegrini explains how he got the better of West Ham United's last manager - David Moyes - when the two went head-to-head in a 2013 Manchester derby, won 4-1 by Pellegrini's City side.

"The system is not really important," he says. "What is important for me as a manager is my idea about football - and not compromising it just because you have a high-quality opponent.

"Of course you have to take your opponent into account as far as the main characteristics of the game are concerned, but if you consider what the opponent does as a priority over your own system then you'd be changing the team week in, week out."
