The former Wales international stuck up for Bilic following the Hammers’ narrow 1-0 victory over Swansea City at home at the weekend.
Diafra Sakho’s goal in the 90th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides at the London Stadium in the Premier League game.
The performances of the Hammers against the Swans was not great, but in the end the London outfit managed to pick up all three points from the encounter.
It was Bilic’s substitutions that did the trick. Substitutes Arthur Masuaku and Sakho combined for the late winner for West Ham.
Former Blackburn Rovers midfielder Savage, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport and BT Sport, has defended Bilic, as shown in the following video on BT Sport’s Twitter page.
“He has made two good substitutions there and he has won the game,” Savage told BT Sport about Bilic.
