Bilic tipped to replace Big Sam
West Ham United parted company with manager Sam Allardyce after the club's defeat against Newcastle United.
Allardyce had been in charge of the Hammers for four seasons but just minutes after the defeat at St James' Park, West Ham released a statement saying: "The club have begun the search for a new manager after deciding not to renew Sam Allardyce's contract.
"I take great pride in what I have achieved. The team, the club is in a hugely more successful position than when I took over," he said.
Former West Ham defender and Croatia coach Slaven Bilic has been installed as favourite to replace Allardyce.
