West Ham boss Slaven Bilic favourite for the sack

According to popular bookmakers Ladbrokes, West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is the most likely manager to be sacked before the end of the season.

The Croatian manager has been tipped with 1/6 odds of being sacked before the end of the season. He came under heavy criticism last season as the Hammers endured a frustrating time and ended up finishing in 11th position while flirting with relegation in the process.

The club have not shown a marked improvement so far this season as they have thus far only picked up several points from their opening several games.

Should things stay the way they are, it is likely that the hierarchy of the club will feel that a change of managers is necessary either before the end of the season or at the end when Bilic’s current contract expires.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is also 1/3 second favorites to be sacked while Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare follows at 2/7.
