David Moyes set to replace Slaven Bilic at West Ham
Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has reportedly been tipped to replace Slaven Bilic at West Ham.
Bilic, who is a few months into his third season in charge, has been the subject of constant speculation for several weeks after a disappointing start to the new campaign.
Liverpool thrashed West Ham 4-1 at the London Stadium on Saturday, leaving the Hammers languishing in 17th spot, just one point above the relegation after winning just two of their opening 11 games this season.
West Ham’s hierarchy reportedly feel it’s high time to make a change in the hopes that the upcoming international break will give the new manager time to settle in before the Hammers’ next game.
Asked after Saturday’s defeat if he still had West Ham’s backing, Bilic told BT Sport: “It’s hard for me to talk about that now.”
“I have to talk to the chairman, we are going to discuss this defeat,” he said. “It’s not the first one, it’s the second in a row in home. It is a very difficult situation for me. I always believe in myself, I wouldn’t be here otherwise.”
He then told the BBC: “The pressure mounts game by game and at this moment it is big. My situation is very difficult, we will see what the club will do.”
Former Everton manager David Moyes, who has been out of work since leaving Sunderland at the end of last season following their relegation from the Premier League, has been tipped to replace Bilic at the London Stadium.
West Ham’s next match is at Watford on Sunday, 19 November.
