West Ham must re-appoint this manager if Bilic is sacked as speculation grows
COMMENT by Amir Mir
It won’t come as a surprise, but it seems that West Ham manager Slaven Bilic’s time at the club could be coming to an abrupt end.
The Telegraph claimed on Friday morning that Bilic could be sacked as manager if his side lose to fellow relegation strugglers Swansea at the weekend.
The Hammers have struggled for the majority of the campaign and it would be better if the senior figures at the club put Bilic out of his misery, they clearly don’t trust him.
It has been a season of struggle for the London-based club, who have failed to adapt to their new surroundings and were forced to sell their best player in January after he went on strike.
New energy, a new lease of life and fresh ideas are needed at the club, therefore, it would be ideal if the club brought Harry Redknapp back to the club.

The 70-year-old understands the club inside out, having played and managed them for a number of years.
Supporters may look towards his age and recent managerial jobs as a negative, but in truth, he would bring back the attacking flair the club is desperately craving.
Redknapp could set the club up for a younger and much better candidate to take the managerial role later down the line.
