West Ham vice chair Karren Brady says she and her Board have "complete faith" in new manager Manuel Pellegrini.

The 64-year-old has received plenty of criticisam in the past week or so after his team lost thei ropening four games of the Premier League campaign.

However Brady insists that Pellegrini retains the full support of the Board, who backed him to the tune of 100million during the summer.

"Having decided we did not want to go through another season like the last one, the Board took action," Brady told SunSport.

"We appointed a manager with the most successful career we have ever had in Manuel Pellegrini and spent over 100million on players he wanted that we all thought would improve the team considerably.

"It hasn't happened yet but I have complete faith that things will soon start to turn our way.

"The most important thing is to stick together. It takes time for a new team to gel, but gel they will and targeting the manager or certain players will help no-one.

"As a club, we will stand by them all, confident that they have the makings of an excellent side. They need the encouragement of the many people, like the supporters and the Chairmen who love this club."

Pellegrini returned to Chile last week at the start of the international break, but was expected to return to the UK during the weekend.
