Bilic ‘not fearful’ despite reports West Ham boss could be axed


Slaven Bilic has insisted he does not fear for his job as West Ham manager.

Bilic’s side have endured a troubled season so far and are currently just one point and one place above the Premier League relegation zone.

There has duly been speculation over the Croatian’s future, with the Daily Telegraph reporting this week that the West Ham hierarchy are worried about the possibility of relegation and have been considering alternatives to Bilic.

However, speaking at a press conference on Friday morning, Bilic said he believes he has the support of the club’s owners.

“I speak to the owners regularly after every game and I feel support. I’m concentrating on my job and our next game,” he said.

“I’m not fearful. I feel pressure of course as at the moment we are not producing and do not have enough points to feel happy and safe.”

And Bilic, whose team face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, is adamant that the Hammers are showing signs of turning their season around.

He said: “I do see the improvement and looking at the last game against Spurs I see a team that was hungry and alive and the points were there for us.

“I take my job in good times and bad times.”
