Vote of confidence for Bilic


Filed: Sunday, 2nd April 2017

West Ham's Board have given Slaven Bilic the dreaded 'vote of confidence'.

In a statement published on Monday morning, the club declared that Bilic's position is not under threat, despite a slew or stories appearing in the media in recent weeks suggesting as such.

"To end speculation once and for all, the West Ham United Board feel it necessary to announce that we have 100 per cent faith in Slaven Bilic's ability to lead West Ham United," it read.




"Despite press speculation to the contrary, the manager's position is not under threat. The Board know that Slaven and his coaching staff have the full backing of the playing squad and the overwhelming majority of supporters to lead West Ham United out of this difficult spell.

"The Board now urge all supporters to unite behind the manager, his staff and the squad as we go into some important games. We all have complete confidence in their ability to end a testing run of results and finish the season on a high."

The Board's statement comes in the wake of a KUMB poll on Bilic, in which 80 per cent of those pollled voted to retain Bilic's services. You may see the results of that on the KUMB Forum.
