West Ham have parted company with manager Slaven Bilic, after the Hammers’ 4-1 loss at home to Liverpool on Saturday.
Bilic has been under pressure since last season, as under par performances saw West Ham finish in a rather faltering 11th place, and after Saturday’s loss, their sixth in 11 games, this term, the club hierarchy have decided to act by relieving the Croatian of his position.
Bilic’s dismissal also sees members of his staff in Miljenko Rak, Edin Terzic, Julian Dicks and Nikola Jurcevic all vacate their posts.
Former West Ham and Everton defender Bilic was appointed in the summer of 2015 as a replacement for Sam Allardyce, and led the club to seventh place in his first season, before things took a turn for the worse since then.
West Ham are expected to announce a replacement soon, with rumours of David Moyes coming in on an initial six-month contract very rife.
