Slaven Bilic rejects rumours of Premier League move

Beşiktaş manager Slaven Bilic has rejected rumours linking him with a Premier League move in the summer.

Bilic also underlined that he is happy at Beşiktaş and proud to be manager of the team.

“An image has been portrayed that I want to move to England and coach a Premier League team,” Bilic said in an interview with Bosnian channel BHT.

“I am the manager of Beşiktaş and proud of it, all other rumours are nonsense.”

Bilic spent four years in England during his playing career. The former Croatia national team coach played for West Ham United and Everton.
