I'll pay the price, admits Slav

Slaven Bilic has admitted that he will almost certainly pay the ultimate price should his team continue their recent run of abject form.

The beleaguered Hammers boss has seen his team take just two points from their last six matches, which leaves United just six points above the relegation zone with eight matches to play.

"They are making up ground," replied Bilic, when asked about the shrinking gap below West Ham, now 14th. "It's very open and they are closing the gap.

"With a point we are keeping them nine points behind us, but now it's only six. I'm doing my job and I'm motivated - but if we are making so many mistakes, then you will pay the price."




Despite Bilic's concerns regarding his future at West Ham, vice chair Karren Brady used her tabloid column this morning to deny reports that the club were preparing to part company with the man who achieved the club's third best finish in its 117-year history last season.

"I have a two-word answer to people who are listing candidates for Slaven Bilic's job - shut up!," she wrote. "We like our manager and we rate him, so we are planning to keep him. Those poison-penned pundits who say they know, don't.

"Our move to the London Stadium was always going to be testing for the players. And if Slaven is the boss we believe him to be, he'll soon bring back the exciting style he brought to West Ham when we appointed him at the start of last season."
