West Ham ace fails to back Bilic, deflects from question

West Ham United have made an underwhelming start to their season.

Aaron Cresswell of England looks on after the FIFA 2018 World Cup Group F Qualifier between Lithuania and England at LFF Stadium on October 8, 2017 in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Hammers left-back Aaron Cresswell spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's shocking 4-1 home defeat to Liverpool yesterday, and responded to a question asking him if Slaven Bilic is the right man for the job at the London Stadium, as quoted by the Express.

West Ham have endured a woeful start to their campaign this season, and currently sit in 17th position in the table, after their paltry return of just nine points in the 11 games they have played thus far.

Many pundits and fans alike believe that the Croatian has run out of time in east London, and it could be argued that he has lost the dressing room - something that always signifies the beginning of the end for any manager.

And Cresswell hardly offered strong words of support for his manager, when asked if Bilic is the right man for the job at West Ham.

As quoted by the Express, the 27-year-old responded:

"They are not our decisions. As players we can be professional and do our best.”

There are already strong rumours circulating that Bilic's time is up in east London, with David Moyes set to replace the 49-year-old, according to Football.London.

Whether the club's co-owners are prepared to pay-out the Croatian though, remains to be seen.
