Let pre-season commence (in the rain)

Manuel Pellegrini and his new charges have been enjoying their first day of training in Switzerland.

The new manager and his recently-confirmed backroom team led the first team squad - or those who were present, at least - through a rigorous first morning's training at Sportplatz Ri-AU, the home of Swiss third-tier side FC Bad Ragaz.

Having arrived in Switzerland last night, having left England earlier in the day, the players were straight into their pre-season training programme on the first day at their (rain-drenched) training base.

Pellegrini's team, which includes Ruben Cousillas (Assistant Manager), Enzo Maresca (First Team Coach), Xavi Valero (Goalkeeping Coach), Jose Cabello (Fitness Coach) and Felix Cao (Assistant Fitness Coach) were also on hand to assist their new work mates.

West Ham's recent arrivals Ryan Fredericks and Issa Diop have both flown to Switzerland with the rest of the squad, although Marko Arnautovic and those players representing their nations at the World Cup Finals will return later in the month.
