Bilic reports dismissed


Filed: Wednesday, 3rd May 2017
By: Staff Writer


A newspaper report suggesting that Slaven Bilic has only two games to save his job has been dismissed by a club insider.

David Hytner, writing in today's Guardian claimed that Bilic requires positive results from the final two home games against Tottenham and Liverpool to avoid potentially facing the sack.




However a club insider has dismissed reports of Bilic's impending doom as "rubbish", adding that the the end-of-season Board meeting, at which Hayter claimed the Board will decide "whether to persist with" Bilic, is simply a regular, annual post-season meeting.

"Next year we'll be aiming for a top half finish and pushing for a place in Europe," the source told KUMB. "We haven't bought well enough this season, but we all take responsibility for that."

West Ham face Spurs at the Olympic Stadium this Friday night, knowing that a win would almost certainly end Tottenham's hopes of winning the Premier League.
