WEST HAM PONDERING MOVE TO BRING INFLUENTIAL MAN BACK TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE

October 22, 2017

After a disastrous start to the season, the number of West Ham fans calling for Bilic’s head has now increased.

The Hammers are thought to be considering the Croat’s future and have identified some possible replacements.

According to a report by The Mirror, West Ham’s ideal candidate for the job is Roberto Mancini.

Mancini is currently the manager of Zenit St Petersburg and is being lined up as Bilic’s successor.

Zenit are currently top of the Russian top division and West Ham’s owners will have to convince him to move back to England with West Ham just above the relegation zone.

Slaven Bilic’s future could be decided if he fails to turn things around in the next two games.

The Irons face a trip to Wembley to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup and then they have a crunch game at the bottom of the Premier League as they face Crystal Palace.

Other than Mancini, West Ham are looking at two other candidates.

Burnley’s Sean Dyche is on their list and so is Reading manager Jaap Stam if they fail to convince Mancini to move to the London Stadium.
