Slaven Bilic Sacked! West Ham United Fans React Furiously On Twitter Regarding The Likely Replacement

It had to happen. Even Slaven Bilic himself knew this. West Ham United have parted ways with Slaven Bilic as the Croatian manager will not be seen at the London Stadium anymore.

There had been a sense of urgency among the club hierarchy following the 4-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool in the last match and it has reflected in a big way as they decided to show Bilic the door.

The East London club has issued a statement that says, “West Ham United can confirm that Slaven Bilic has today left his position with the Club.

The Chairmen and Board of West Ham United would like to place on record their thanks and gratitude to Slaven and his team for their services over the past two-and-a-half years, but believe a change is now necessary in order for the Club to move forward positively and in line with their ambition.”

Bilic eased his way in the first season with the club as with the help of their talismanic midfielder Dimitri Payet, the Croat managed to almost achieve the impossible as the Hammers were on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League. However, the Hammers were dealt a major blow to their hopes of competing in Europe’s premier competition at the hands of Astra Giurgiu.

Bilic was optimistic following a very successful summer transfer window but he failed to transform this side as barring Pablo Zabaleta none of his signings has lived up to the expectations.

In addition to that, West Ham United always had an issue with their new home. Since they shifted to the beautiful London Stadium from Upton Park, they have failed to show the required composure, which might be one of the reasons behind their dip in form. The atmosphere inside the stadium was also less intimidating as the galleries are situated so far from the main field that speakers are used to make it more immersive.

David Moyes is apparently favourite to be the interim manager till the end of this season. The Scottish gaffer is currently out of job following his dismissal from Sunderland last season and has emerged as the top contender to replace Bilic at the London Stadium.

The decision couldn’t have come at a better moment as the stage seems set for the Hammers to decide on the future course of action during the upcoming international break.

Undermentioned are the reactions of the people who took to the twitter following the sacking of the Croatian gaffer.
