West Ham United fans have certainly enjoyed the management of Slaven Bilic so far. He has brought in a more attractive style of play then the previous management of Sam Allardyce and The Hammers have had a promising season so far.
Bilic's coaching career has been varied so far. He discovered success with the Croatian national team and also spent time in Russia and Turkey with Lokomotiv Moscow and Besiktas respectively.
The future therefore would not seem to be dictated by location or league and Bilic admits he knows that anything can happen in football when asked by German publication Sport1 whether he could return to Germany:
"Karlsruhe was a great time in my career as a player. I wish the KSC that they do it as soon as possible back to the Bundesliga to play.
"As a football coach you do not know where you're going to be next year. I was in Croatia, Russia, Turkey and now in England. It's a vagabond life.
"I do not think too far ahead. It goes so fast up and down, because it will help you continue not to have an extreme long-term plan."
The Croatian spent three years in Germany as a player, with Karlsruhe and you can certainly see German influences in his style of football.
Bilic of course will be hoping for a long and fruitful relationship with West Ham, especially as the club is moving into the Olympic Stadium in the summer.
It is an exciting future for West Ham and hopefully it will come under Bilic.
Although, if he does end up moving on, it looks like Bilic is happy to move anywhere to carry on his career anywhere.
