Slaven Bilic’s start of the season with West Ham hasn’t been good, with the club getting only seven points after seven fixtures in the Premier League.
With the performances not anywhere near what the fans expected before the start of the season, the pressure on the boss is only growing, and it’s starting to get to a point where the rumours of an early departure can’t be avoided.
Now the Spanish press is getting involved in the situation, as Catalan outlet Sport claims that the Hammers have been interested in two different managers to replace Bilic.
The one on top of the list is Quique Sanchez Flores, who managed Watford before being ushered out in 2016. It’s claimed that he fancies a return to England and West Ham are keen on offering this option.
But there’s a problem, which is the fact that Flores is not planning to leave Espanyol before the end of the season, with a bigger complication which is a clause preventing both parties breaking the contract. And considering how things are going, Bilic could end up being sacked before that.
That’s why despite not being the priority, Fulham manager Slaviša Jokanović ends up being more likely to get, since his stay at the Cottagers is not that assured.
That would put the Hammers in a situation where they decide between a quick fix or waiting for the dream signing in the summer. Either way, Bilic’s future doesn’t seem positive.
