PELLEGRINO would become the second Argentinian coach in the English Premier League along with the other Mauricio, POCHETTINO over at Tottenham Hotspur. According to the Telegraph, PELLEGRINO has already had an interview with members of the club and should be in position to take over by the time players return to pre-season training on Thursday.
