Fulham head coach Slavisa Jokanovic is being lined up by West Ham United as a replacement for Slaven Bilic according to a report from the Daily Express.
While West Ham haven’t done that badly in the last few games, they drew 2-2 with Sunderland yesterday and won last week against Swansea City, their season has been seen as a disaster by the higher-ups. After challenging for a place in the Champions League last season, everything has fallen apart since they moved from Upton Park to the London Stadium and have been battling against relegation this season.
And while he was a fan favourite last year, Bilic is set to get the blame for this downturn and looks set to be sacked in the summer following the end of the season. And West Ham are already looking for his replacement and previous reports have indicated they will be looking at successful bosses from the Sky Bet Championship to be their new manager, with Newcastle United’s Rafa Benitez and Huddersfield Town’s David Wagner being linked to the role within the last few months.
But now they have moved onto another great Championship manager as this report says they will be making a move to appoint Slavisa Jokanovic as their new head coach. He has really turned Fulham around as instead of battling against relegation like they did last season, they are fighting for a spot in the play-offs and are currently 7th in the league. But as he has never managed in the Premier League, he was sacked by Watford shortly after he got them promoted, he may be tempted to jump up and join West Ham.
