Even after a heavy defeat, Slaven Bilic is capable of producing a good laugh.
That is what the West Ham manager delivered despite his team receiving a thrashing, as the amicable Croatian did just that after West Ham’s latest spanking at the hands of Manchester City.
Noticing the abundance of post game press conference attention after a loss being conspicuously more than a win, Bilic offered a funny assessment of what he saw.
“It was because I had, I don’t know, 10 interviews,” Bilic said to a laughing room of reporters. “When we win games, it’s one or two interviews. Polish, Norwegian, South Africa, Croatian even.”
Based on that, Bilic hopes he sees just several reporters on Saturday when they take on Southampton.
