Slaven Bilic explains why West Ham co-chairmen are different to other owners

Slaven Bilic - West Ham Vs Birkrikara

The West Ham head coach has been singing the praises of his employers.

West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic believes David Gold and David Sullivan are different from other owners because they stick to their word and have been very good to him since he took over at Upton Park, according to the London Evening Standard.

Indeed, the Hammers head coach says other owners might make promises that go unfulfilled but insists he is treated very well by the West Ham hierarchy and is proud to see the club going in the right direction.

And Bilic has heaped praise on Gold and Sullivan as a result.

The Croat told the Standard: "Every manager, when they come into a job, asks for the ultimate responsibility of, with the help of his staff, searching out the players he wants.

"In some cases he is promised that by the club’s hierarchy at the start, only to find out that it doesn’t always happen.

"Here, though, the chairmen have been really good to me in every respect. I believe we as a club are moving forward. I know it hasn’t been easy for them all the time but this is a big club and it is moving forward with giant strides."

Sullivan and Gold - a few Twitter or interview gaffes aside - have certainly made several good moves. And all of them simple & straightforward.

There has been little rocket science applied to West Ham's formula of success even though it's one other clubs have failed to follow.

The sky is the limit for the Hammers this season and a top-four place certainly isn't out of their reach. Top six would represent a fantastic first campaign for Bilic and West Ham fans will no doubt hope for even bigger things once they move into the Olympic Stadium.
