Struggling West Ham sack manager Bilic

Struggling West Ham sack manager Bilic”

He led the Hammers to a 7th place finish in his first season in charge but Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Liverpool has seen them drop into the relegation zone.

"Disappointed, but not in the club".

West Ham said an announcement on a new manager is due to be made over the coming days, with former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes widely expected to replace Bilic at the London Stadium.

He was sacked by Spanish team Real Sociedad after a year in charge before a chastening 10-month spell at Sunderland, which he failed to keep in England's lucrative top division.

His arrival will certainly lift the intensity of training and for good measure he has turned to Stuart Pearce, a former West Ham player he hopes he can persuade to join his coaching staff.

"Most often, new coaches want to change players and tactics to suit what they believe in, in order to achieve success and have the support of everyone at the club". "If the right opportunity comes around, I'll be interested".

Ultimately a run of just two wins in their opening 11 matches this season meant the writing was on the wall for the Croatian, and he was dismissed from his post on Monday.

Since then, West Ham has lost in embarrassing fashion at home to Brighton (3-0) and Liverpool.

Speaking through his auto window, Bilic said: "The fans were brilliant to me from the start to the end and I really feel it, it's not just words". This was personal because of my relationships with the club.

West Ham conceded late goals in the first game of the season against Manchester United and looked off the pace in that opener.

It was hoped that the high-profile signings of Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez during the offseason would provide the necessary spark for West Ham, but the team is proving just as inconsistent. We didn't start this crucial season well.

Bilic's assistants Nikola Jurcevic, Edin Terzic, Julian Dicks and Miljenko Rak have also left the club with immediate effect.

Sam Allardyce takes the Everton manager's job it throws up the intriguing possibility at Goodison later this month of Moyes v Allardyce, both facing their old clubs.
