Julian Dicks: Slaven Bilic would do a good job at West Ham

The 46-year-old has backed the Croatian to do well at West Ham.

West Ham United ladies boss Julian Dicks feels Slaven Bilic would do a good job were he to take charge of the east London club.

Current West Ham boss Sam Allardyce's contract expires at the end of the season and the majority of fans appear to want the 60-year-old to leave his post at Upton Park.

Bilic, meanwhile, used to be a defender for the Hammers and Dicks - who also turned out for the club's back four - thinks he would do a good job as manager.

Asked by a fan on Twitter about Bilic, the West Ham coach gave his honest opinion in response.

Rafa Benitez is the bookmakers' favourite to replace Allardyce but Bilic is rated as a strong second favourite, according to sports betting website Oddschecker.

Indeed, the former West Ham defender can be backed at varying prices ranging from 3/1 and 5/2 to 4/1.

Clearly, those odds are relatively short and Bilic definitely seems like a candidate who could appeal to both West Ham's owners and fans.

And the 46-year-old looks as though he just might have the backing of the club's ladies manager, too...
