Slaven Bilic’s reign at West Ham United seems to be heading towards an imminent end, as club higher-ups have given him a 48-hour deadline in order to turn things around at the London Stadium.
After having secured just three wins in all competitions so far this season, the Croatian hasn’t exactly led his side to a satisfying campaign this term. With their latest victory coming against an unlikely opponent, Tottenham Hotspur, in the League Cup at Wembley, the Londoners were quickly brought down back to Earth by Liverpool in a 4-1 humiliation at home.
However, it seems as if the club owners, David Gold and David Sullivan, have finally achieved a proper grasp over the situation, and have finally decided that they need a closure.
According to Sky Sports, Bilic has been given a mere 48 hours to prove he can still lead West Ham to a contrasting scenario than the one they are currently in.
Further, Sky also reported that the Stratford outfit has initiated talks with David Moyes should the Hammers’ boss fail to display his worth by the given deadline. The club owners reportedly believe their employee has been given enough time to turn things around, and are well prepared to introduce a fresh leader in the West Ham dressing room.
Nevertheless, regardless of who is burdened with the task, turning around West Ham’s season from this point on will certainly prove to be a formidable test. Bilic’s men currently sit 17th in the Premier League table, and face an in-form Watford next.
