Slaven Bilic has become the bookmakers favourite to take over as the next West Ham manager after Unai Emery revealed he will be staying at Sevilla.
Emery overtook Bilic as the man expected to replace Sam Allardyce yesterday but the former Croatian national team manager is now priced as a heavy favourite by every book offering betting options on the Hammers next head coach.
Bilic was given an emotional farewell today by Beşiktaş fans ahead of his flight to Croatia.
The ex Beşiktaş coach will have a two week break in Croatia before taking on his next job.
The 46-year-old coach joined Beşiktaş in 2013 and resigned at the end of the 2014-15 season.
Beşiktaş were unable to win silverware under Bilic but they were involved in an impressive European run this season.
The Black Eagles were undefeated against Premier League opposition in the Europe this season – drawing against Arsenal while beating Tottenham and Liverpool.
