Slaven Bilic SACKED by West Ham after disastrous start to season

The Hammers boss had been on thin ice for some time and is expected to be replaced by David Moyes

West Ham were meant to be challenging for Champions League football by now.

But instead they’re loitering in the Premier League relegation zone and without a manager.

That’s after the Hammers board took the decision to sack Slaven Bilic on Monday morning following the disastrous 4-1 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.

The writing has been on the wall for Bilic for some time, particularly after a 3-0 home defeat to Brighton last month.

But while the board had initially backed the Croat the Liverpool result has forced their hand.

Bilic becomes the fourth manager to be sacked already this season after Ronald De Boer, Craig Shakespeare and Ronald Koeman.

David Moyes – yes David Moyes – is expected to be announced as his replacement.

The former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager is the bookies’ favourite to replace Bilic and will have Phil Neville as his assistant.

A true, crime-fighting duo.
