Slaven Bilic isn’t helping himself if he wants to keep his job at West Ham.
The Croatian manager has seen his side lose five out of their opening six games after such a promising season last time around.
The pressure is cranking up from above, with co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan admitting they would wait to see how this season panned out before offering him a new contract, which he was meant to be receiving in January.
West Ham’s problems aren’t restricted to the field of play, either, with Andy Carroll and Darren Randolph spotted out drinking in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
To make matters worse, Bilic has now conceded that the night out was his idea, as per the Daily Mail.
“It was completely my idea,” he insisted, though by the sounds of it, he envisaged a team meal led by Mark Noble in order to boost team spirit.
What he now has on his hands is a breach of discipline by two players who clearly took things too far.
Carroll’s behaviour is unlikely to go down well given that he is supposed to be putting his all into recovering from injury, but for now, it is likely to be Bilic who suffers the consequences.
