Slaven Bilic gives clear indication of his long-term future

Slaven Bilic says that he wants to remain at West Ham United for a long time.

Slaven Bilic has told The Sun that he is planning a long-term stay at West Ham United.

Bilic was appointed the West Ham manager in the summer of 2015 following the departure of Sam Allardyce from the Boleyn Ground.

The Croatian’s current contract with the Hammers runs until June 2018, and he wants to remain at the Premier League club beyond that.

“Would I like to stay here?” Bilic told The Sun. "Of course. I have a contract for three years but I want to stay for many more. I’m happy at West Ham. Totally concentrated and totally happy. That’s the truth. I want to stay.”

Bilic is doing a wonderful job at West Ham at the moment and is very popular among the fans. The Hammers are currently sixth in the Premier League table with 36 points from 23 matches.

The London outfit are just six points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who are fourth in the standings at the moment and occupy the final Champions League spot.

West Ham fans should be pleased with Bilic’s pledge to remain at the club, as there is a good chance that the team will progress brilliantly under him.

The Hammers, who played out a goalless draw with Liverpool away from home at Anfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday evening, will take on Aston Villa at home in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.
