Under-pressure Bilic given deadline to save his job at West Ham

Under-pressure Bilic given deadline to save his job at West Ham”

West Ham owners have made up their mind to settle on with Slaven Bilic as their manager, for the time being.

The Hammers were well beaten by Brighton & Hove Albion on Friday as the visitors ran out 3-0 winners at The London Stadium.

The board are understood to have given the Croatian two more games to save his job, but Bilic is prepared to field a second-string side for the EFL Cup fourth round tie at Wembley in order to prioritise Saturday's Premier League clash with fellow strugglers Crystal Palace.

There are two managers who could replace the Croatian tactician in East London and both of them are Italian and would return to the Premier League if West Ham call them.

While Tottenham now find themselves third in the Premier League table with 20 points from nine games, West Ham are 16th in the standings with just eight points.

Sky Sports News reported that the club board were meeting on Saturday to discuss Bilic's future.

Two goals from Glenn Murray and a Jose Izquierdo strike condemned the Hammers to their worst start to a season since 2010, taking just eight points from nine games. As a manager you take the credit and as a manager you take the full responsibility.

He further added when asked about whether he'll be given a chance to turn this sitch around that, "The board will do what they are going to do". We have been in this situation before and we got out. I don't want to hide. "I'm doing my best".

The club's hierarchy are in a hard position as Bilic has a contract until the end of the season and Sullivan stated on Friday that it was "morally wrong" to sack managers.

Bilic, who previously enjoyed a playing career at West Ham, succeeded Sam Allardyce in the summer of 2015 and his overall record, in all competitions as Hammers manager, stands at: 106 matches played with 41 of those ending in victory (38.7%).
