Brady delivers blunt Bilic assessment: This is what West Ham need next season

By Aramide Oladipo

West Ham chief Karren Brady has sent out a message to manager Slaven Bilic to strengthen the team’s defence and coax more consistency from the players in the Premier League next season.

It’s been a tough transition for West Ham this season since moving from Upton Park and playing at the new London Stadium.

The Hammers have been fighting relegation for the majority of the campaign and this is mainly down to their poor home form as they have lost eight games in the league at their new ground.

This is a stark difference to their performances last season as Slaven Bilic led his side to the Europa League with a seventh place finish in his first season in charge of the club.

Writing in her column for the Sun, the outspoken vice-chairman Brady believes that her club need to improve two key elements in order to replicate the success of the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign.

Brady stated: “Manager Slaven Bilic has to believe that experience in defence and greater consistency will move us up the table at least to where we were in 2016.”

The highlight of West Ham’s season was ending bitter rival’s Tottenham’s title chances with a 1-0 victory at the London Stadium at the start of May.

The Hammers are currently in 12th place in the league table and a win away at Burnley on the final day of the season could see them secure a finish in the top ten.
