Pellegrini earns Diangana praise
West Ham youngster Grady Diangana believes Manuel Pellegrini's methods are bringing the best out of his game.
The 20-year-old academy product has benefited from the club’s injury woes, making 15 appearances since bagging a brace on his debut against Macclesfield.
Pellegrini is a coach famed for his attacking approach and has given the likes of Diangana and Felipe Anderson the chance to express themselves.
The Chilean has also used his experience to manage the winger’s workload and the DR Congo-born star feels the boss's methods can help him continue his development.
"I think the fans understand that, when a young player comes in, there is a learning process and players will make mistakes," he told the club's website. "But the important thing is that I learn from those mistakes so I don’t make the same mistake more than once.
"I know I will improve. I like things to happen quickly, but I know it is a slow and gradual process.
"The manager’s style of play is what I’ve grown up watching and trying to take into my game. For me, it’s been perfect."
