The 64-year-old was travelling to a restaurant in Santiago with his wife and friends when targeted by a gang.

New West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini and his wife were mugged at gunpoint on Saturday as they visited a restaurant in the Chilean capital, according to a report.

The assailants fled in a stolen auto, which was later found abandoned, according to reports in Chile.

A spokesman for London club West Ham, whom the Chilean joined as manager this summer, said: "We are relieved to hear that Manuel and his wife were both unharmed".

Pellegrini and his friends are said to have tried to calm the criminals down before they had weapons pointed at them.

The armed robbers were intercepted by police as they tried to run to their auto.

Another local news report said officers recovered the purse when they found the auto abandoned.

No arrests have been made.

Nobody was hurt during the incident and Pellegrini tweeted his thanks to the police - know in Chile as Carabineros - who quickly intercepted the perpetrators who sped away in a stolen Porsche Cayenne.

Pellegrini wrote on Twitter: "Congratulations to @Carabdechile for their speedy and courageous reaction".

"I can't understand how these sorts of things are happening and you can't even go out for dinner without being robbed like this". That's the perception citizens like me have'.
