West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic is a man under pressure and the last gasp 1-0 win over Swansea last time out has done little to change things.

The Hammers have only won two of their seven Premier League games so far this season.

The hangover from a disappointing season last term has seen speculation intensify over Bilic's future with the likes of Carlo Ancelotti, Thomas Tuchel, Rafa Benitez and Roberto Mancini linked.

Bilic has been slowly losing the backing of the West Ham faithful, although a large section of fans still point the finger of blame at the board for a lack of ambition in the transfer market since the big move to the Olympic Stadium.

But supporters seem to be in agreement on one thing, none of them want the latest manager to be linked with the London Stadium hot seat, Wales boss Chris Coleman.

According to the Daily Star, the Hammers are keeping tabs on Coleman's situation with Wales over the international break.

The former Fulham manager's contract with Wales expires whenever their World Cup 2018 campaign ends.

And that could be as early as this weekend should results not go their way in their final two qualifiers against Georgia and the Republic of Ireland.

But Hammers fans aren't happy with the prospect of swapping Bilic for Coleman, with one describing it as 'Like losing a fiver and finding a quid' on Twitter.
