Alvaro Arbeloa delivers brutal verdict on Slaven Bilic sacking at West Ham
By Danny Wright
Former West Ham player Alvaro Arbeloa has brutally claimed that it was about time that Slaven Bilic was sacked.
The Croatian manager was shown the exit door at the London Stadium on Monday with the Hammers occupying the Premier League relegation zone.
Arbeloa, 34, spent the final season of his career with West Ham last campaign, but never seemed to have been able to impress Bilic as he made just four appearances across all competitions for the London club.
For most of his time with the Irons, the ex-Real Madrid and Liverpool right-back was injured, but after news reached him on Monday night about Bilic, he wasn’t very respectful to who was the final manager he played under in his career.
“Better late than never,” Arbeloa said on his personal Twitter account, quoted a new story about the Croat’s sacking.

Arbeloa won just one game with the Hammers which was in the League Cup against Accrington Stanley last September.
In the Premier League, he started in defeats to heavy defeats to Southampton and Arsenal as well as a draw with Middlesbrough, who would go on to get relegated.
West Ham have confirmed that they will announce Bilic’s successor within the next few days with it being widely reported that David Moyes is on his way to the London Stadium.
