West Ham United manager, Slaven Bilic, will be allowed to stay on as the Hammers’ boss, at least for now.
The troubled manager has held talks with co-owner, David Sullivan in the last few days, as per Sky Sports, following a run of poor results, which culminated in the 3-0 humiliation at Newcastle, and his position at the club coming under review.
The loss at the weekend was the Hammers’ third in as many matches in the new campaign, leading to reports that Bilic could be sacked, with Rafa Benitez’s name already mooted as a possible replacement.
However, the 48-year-old will be allowed to stay on, after holding crucial talks with management of the club, though he has been told that results and performances have to improve.
West Ham hosts new comers, Huddersfield, who are yet to lose a game this season, after the international break, and Bilic must do well to avoid another defeat, especially to another newly promoted outfit.
Bilic has less than a year left on his current contract at West Ham.
