This is how long Slaven Bilic has got to save West Ham career - report

By Alex Taylor

Slaven Bilic could be sacked as West Ham manager if results at the club do not improve, according to a report.

The Sun claim that Bilic may lose his job as Hammers boss depending on how results fair over the next month at the Olympic Stadium.

It is said that the Croatian’s job is not under immediate threat but a drastic change in results is needed for him to remain in his job.

The ex-Croatia manager will face Accrington Stanley, Southampton, Middlesbrough, Crystal Palace and Sunderland in that period.

The report says that Chairman David Sullivan had planned to reward Bilic with a new contract in January, but talks over the deal have now been put on hold.

West Ham have won just two of their last twelve games and were comfortably beaten 4-2 by West Brom on Saturday.

His side currently sit 18th in the Premier League after picking up just three points from five games this term.

Bilic joined the east-london outfit in 2015 and guided them to a stunning seventh place finish in England’s top-flight in his first season in charge.

His side have not been helped this term though after further injuries to striker Andy Carroll and the late return of last season’s hero Dimitri Payet have hampered their progress.
