It’s finally official: The Slaven Bilic tenure at West Ham United is over.

The club announced on their official website that they have departed ways with the amicable Croatian, two days after the 4-1 defeat to Liverpool at the London Stadium.

Here is the announcement:

West Ham United can confirm that Slaven Bilic has today left his position with the Club.

The Chairmen and board of West Ham United would like to place on record their thanks and gratitude to Slaven and his team for their services over the past two-and-a-half years, but believe a change is now necessary in order for the Club to move forward positively and in line with their ambition.

West Ham United can confirm that Bilic’s coaching assistants Nikola Jurcevic, Edin Terzic, Julian Dicks and Miljenko Rak have also left the Club with immediate effect.

The Club’s search for a new manager to take West Ham United forward is underway and an announcement regarding Bilic’s successor is expected to be made over the coming days.

As mentioned before, David Moyes, with Stuart Pearce as his assistant, looks likeliest to replace Bilic.

Truly a mess all around, as many players have gone on international break for the final time this season.
