​The future of Slaven Bilic

What’s the future of Slaven Bilic After Craig Shakespeare was sacked by Leicester City about one week ago, the next Premier league club manager who could be leaving his job could well be West Ham’s Slaven Bilic.

This is as a West Ham insider (as reported by The Express) is reporting the Croatian manager has offered his resignation to the club.

This is according to @ExWHUemployee who in the summer transfer window and in the last few weeks revealed some insider information on West Ham which ended up being spot on. According to @ExWHUemployee, Bilic gave his resignation to the board and said goodbye to his players after the hammers lost 3-0 at home to Brighton on Friday night.

@ExWHUemployee tweeted this morning: “Bilic said his goodbyes to the players after the result. Don’t think he formally submitted a resignation though just offered.”

The defeat to Brighton on Friday has seen West Ham’s relegation odds significantly shortened by various bookmakers including 888sport.com.

However West Ham seem not to be prepared for the departure of Bilic and are said to be persuading Bilic to continue his job at least for now. This much @ExWHUemployee confirmed when a West Ham United fan asked him who the likely replacement for Bilic would be.

“I don’t think they would have had anyone of note, hence persuading Slav to carry on.”

Bilic himself had after the defeat to Brighton on Friday confirmed it was his fault that the club was so disgraced.

“It was a bad performance.

“The goals killed us, the first one very quick. Between the first and second goal we were dominating the game.

“They defended the box really good and at the end of the first half we conceded from a bit of skill from their player. It is very hard for me to say anything clever in this moment apart from it’s very disappointing.

“As manager I take full responsibility.”

Bilic had earlier been asked if he was confident the West Ham management will give him enough time to turn around the fortune of the club to which he answered; “The board will do what they are going to do.

“It is their decision. We have been in this situation before and we got out. As a manager you take the credit and as a manager you take the full responsibility. I don’t want to hide.

“I’m not worried [about the sack]. I’m doing my best.”

It is a shame that we have performed so poorly this season and although I am a big fan of Bilic, I don’t see how he will keep the job till the end of the season unless results start improving very soon.

After nine games, we have eight points and currently 16th on the table. I fully expect the board to sack the former Beşiktaş manager should West ham slide into relegation zone, which is looking increasingly likely especially considering our next five games which includes tricky matches away to Crystal Palace, Watford and Everton and home matches against Liverpool and Leicester.
