The 48-year-old has been manager of the Hammers since 2015, but has endured three consecutive losses this Premier League season
SLAVEN BILIC is facing the sack from West Ham after their humiliating 3-0 defeat against Newcastle, according to reports.
The Hammers were blown away by the Magpies at St James’ Park this afternoon as they suffered their third consecutive loss this season.
According to Sky Sports, the London side are considering sacking the 48-year-old, as their poor run of form has continued into this Premier League campaign.
His position at the club is under review as they are rooted to the bottom of the table – as Joe Hart has conceded a whopping 10 goals already.
They have even claimed that they are eyeing up Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez as his replacement – who has a £5million release clause.
Sky tweeted: “BREAKING: @WestHamUtd have put Slaven Bilic’s position under review after the latest defeat to @NUFC + remain admirers of Rafa Benitez.”
The news was backed up by Sky journalist Kaveh Solhekol who tweeted: “West Ham are considering sacking Slaven Bilic. His position is under review. Performance today “totally unacceptable”. No decision made yet.”
Speaking after today’s defeat, Bilic revealed he is worried by his side’s form, he said: “Newcastle were better in every aspect of the game. They had simply more power, more determination.

“I am worried. I’m not panicking. It’s very early.
“After the game against Southampton, we lost the game, we still had zero points but I was still very, very positive with the way we played, with the way we reacted after we were left with ten men.
“This is different, this is worrying, but like for every club, it has its ups and downs and nobody will take us out of this situation but ourselves.
“Look, I am the manager, it’s my job to be confident and to believe in good and bad times. Even when the times are bad, then you see the importance of the job more than in the good times. I haven’t changed in that.”
Next up for West Ham is a home tie against newly-promoted Huddersfield Town – who have picked up seven points from their opening three fixtures.
