West Ham Manager Slaven Bilic Not Bothered About Sack Talks 

share on:

West Ham are just a point above the relegation zone, but manager Slaven Bilic has played down speculation about his future.

Bilic is under mounting pressure with West Ham lying 17th in the Premier League table.

The Croatian has the full support of joint-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold.

But that will be put to the test with a tough run of games against Manchester United on Sunday followed by Arsenal and Liverpool.

West Ham manager Bilic says he feels supported and said: “There is not much to say I am doing my job, I speak to the owners, mostly Mr Sullivan regularly after every game, and in between if something needs talking about.

“I feel supported as I told you so many times I concentrate on my job and our next game, that’s basically it.

“I’m not fearful, I feel pressure of course because we are not producing, we’re not delivering and don’t have enough points to feel happy and feel safe.

“I see the improvement. I take my job in good times and bad times. (Support) is important but not crucial.

“I have said so many times how I look at my job or any managers job – the next few games can change everything from good times to bad times and bad times to good.

“When we were doing well I wasn’t thinking about getting a new contract. All I concentrate on is how to improve the team, to lift them after a defeat or improve after a good run. That’s how I look at my job.”

Some West Ham supporters have called for Bilic’s head in the wake of last weekend’s last-gasp 3-2 defeat at London rivals Tottenham.

Bilic says his side are heading in the right direction and added: “Against Spurs I see a team hungry and alive, the points were there for us in a difficult away game so that’s what I’m confident about.

“It’s still very tight. Win at Spurs and we’d have been about 12th. We can say it’s still early days but we have to start picking up the points. We can say we deserved more or were unlucky but the table doesn’t lie.”
