We're all backing Bilic, says Cresswell

Aaron Cresswell insists that the entire first team squad are behind Slaven Bilic, following reports that his position may be under threat.

In recent weeks both Roberto Mancini and Jaap Stam have been linked with Bilic's job, following West Ham' poor recent run of form.

However left-back Cresswell - who has struggled to find his own form in recent months - maintains that Bilic retains the support of every one of his players.




If you ask any of the players, they would say the same - we are fully behind him and fully supportive of him," the full back told Sky Sports. "Hopefully we can turn it around and take that pressure off everyone.

"Of course it is not going right at the minute and we want to put that right on Saturday. We know we haven't been good enough, especially of late, and certainly we look forward to the Hull game.

"Certainly all the lads here, the coaching staff and the manager, everyone is giving 110 per cent."




Cresswell also gave his backing to the potential signing of former England captain Wayne Rooney, who has been linked with a summer move to the Olympic Stadium.

"He has arguably been one of the best strikers over the last 15 years and the things he has done, certainly for England, is fantastic," he added. "If he was to come here, that would be fantastic for us, but who knows?"
