West Ham boss Slaven Bilic rules out Fenerbahce move

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has ruled out leaving his current club to take over Fenerbahce according to Turkish sports newspaper Fanatik.

Bilic said: “I loved my time in Turkey but I am happy at West Ham.”

The Croatian manager also underlined that if he does return to Turkey it would only be to take over his former club Besiktas.

“If I return to Turkey it will only be for one team, Besiktas,” he added.

Bilic coached Besiktas for two seasons before taking over West Ham last summer and is credited to laying the foundations for the current Black Eagles side that tops the Turkish Super League.

The Hammers boss did not win the league title in Turkey but did not play a single home game over the two years he was at the club due to the stadium reconstruction project.

The Vodafone Arena stadium finally opened last week after several delays and the inauguration game was played against Bursaspor and resulted in a 3-2 victory.

Besiktas are currently first in the league five points ahead of second placed Fenerbahce who are managed by Portuguese coach Vitor Pereira.
