West Ham sack manager

West Ham sack manager

06 Nov 2017, 14:35

Slaven Bilic has been sacked by West Ham following their poor start to the new season.

The Hammers have won only two of their opening 11 Premier League matches and were defeated 4-1 at home by Liverpool on Saturday. That defeat has left them in 18th place and Bilic, whose position had come under review twice already this season, has now paid the price for their slow start.

David Moyes has held talks with West Ham about replacing Bilic at London Stadium, with the former Manchester United and Everton manager having already publicly expressed an interest in the role.

Moyes has returned home to Preston from work as a TV pundit in Doha and remains in pole position to replace Bilic, although negotiations have not concluded and are understood to be continuing.
