Slaven Bilic gives verdict on struggling West Ham striker Simone Zaza
By Will Butcher
Slaven Bilic has declared himself delighted with on-loan striker Simone Zaza, despite a poor start to his West Ham career.
The Italy international has come under huge criticism from Hammers fans as he struggles to come to terms with the rigours of the Premier League.
Writing in his column on West Ham’s official website, Bilic disagreed with fans by stating that Zaza did everything but score against Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace last weekend during the East London outfit’s 1-0 win.
