West Ham Axed Manager Slaven Bilic

West Ham have sacked manager Slaven Bilic after a terrible run of form.
The club's 4-1 loss to Liverpool at the weekend left them in the English Premier League's bottom three, having collected just two wins from their opening 11 games of the season.

Bilic's reign has subsequently been brought to an end, with former Manchester United and Everton manager David Moyes waiting in the wings to replace him.

Speaking to reporters as he left West Ham's training ground, Bilic - who was appointed in the summer of 2015 - said:
"There are no hard feelings. I can be very proud of my work here.

"We didn't start this crucial season well. As in many clubs across Europe, the manager is the one who pays the price. It's a very logical move."
A statement from joint chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold said:
"Bilic had conducted himself with "honesty and integrity" and the decision to sack him had been made "with disappointment and heavy hearts"."We see this as an exciting opportunity to appoint a quality manager to the position to inject fresh ideas, organisation and enthusiasm into a very talented squad."
