West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has been sacked after poor performances that have left the team in the Premier League’s relegation zone.


Bilic’s last game in charge was Saturday’s 4-1 defeat by Liverpool at London Stadium.


West Ham said the club believed a change was necessary “to move forward positively and in line with their ambition”.


West Ham said an announcement on a new manager is due to be made over the coming days, with former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes widely expected to replace Bilic at the London Stadium.


Bilic’s assistants Nikola Jurcevic, Edin Terzic, Julian Dicks and Miljenko Rak have also left the club with immediate effect.


Bilic, who also played for West Ham, is the fourth Premier League managerial casualty of the season following the departures of Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer, Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare and Everton’s Ronald Koeman.
