Slaven Bilic has officially been sacked at West Ham after Saturday’s 4-1 defeat against Liverpool with the club now in the bottom three.
Bilic only has six months remaining of his three-year contracting with the Hammers and admitted that he is leaving the club with his “head held high.”
With 87 league games, the ex-Hammers boss brought in 116 points – an average of 1.33 points per game which is more than Alan Curbishley and Harry Redknapp made.
Former Everton boss David Moyes could be the successor and may be appointed as early as today.
Bilic said that he understands West Ham owners and that they want changes and away from the danger zone which made them decide to fire him.
“I am sad that it hasn’t worked out in the way we wanted this season,” Bilic said in a statement.
“I was confident that we would be able to progress this season and continue to close the gap between expectation levels and reality, but unfortunately it has not been the case.”
