Slaven Bilic given vote of confidence by West Ham co-chairman David Gold

Doyle BarkerMar 31, 2017

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has maintained he's "not troubled" by speculation over his future in the team and said his intent to see out his contract.

Wagner has impressed in West Yorkshire since taking charge of the Terriers in November 2015, and is now on the radar of Premier League club West Ham, who are considering the position of Bilic after a hard campaign. Would I like to be two or three places higher than we now are, of course I would.

Rafa Benitez, Jaap Stam and Roberto Mancini are among those being touted for the role should West Ham part with Bilic. I just concentrate on my job. "But my head is clear and I am totally motivated and focused".

"I'm within my occupation, I will be joyful and we're in a place where we can possess a great finish to the season". We can climb up a few places if we win games, we can go a few places down if we don't win games.

Two of the games that follow the Hull clash will also see West Ham seeking vital wins, going head-to-head against two more sides now below them in the league table - Swansea and Sunderland.

Slaven Bilic's men have an opportunity to end their five-game winless run against Hull City.

"He is a top manager, whatever anybody says, and I think he'd have done a wonderful job for us". I was saying the same when, for example, earlier in the season when we were talking about a new contract. "I 've another year here".

Bilic now has 15 months remaining on his contract at the London Stadium and has come under increasing pressure during recent weeks after the Hammers have failed to win their last five matches and are now on a run of three consecutive defeats. I am long enough here with West Ham to know what to do.
