Ba backs Bilic

Demba-Ba-West-Ham-007Slaven Bilic has been backed to succeed as West Ham manager by former Hammer Demba Ba. Ba believes Bilic would be an ideal manager for the Hammers, having worked under him at Besiktas this season.

Ba said: “He is full of motivation and very close to the players and it helped, especially us in Besiktas.

“We have a young team and he helps a lot. He is a good guy. He would be a good choice.

“He has that German mentality and in football that German mentality helps a lot because they are very disciplined and do things right in football and I think he does that.

“If he comes here I think and I hope he is going to be successful.

“He seems like he is rough and rude on the sidelines but he is actually very soft and calm with the players.

“He would be like a confident. He is very open and someone you can talk to.”

“He gave me that confidence, always telling me I was the best and at the end of the day I scored a lot of goals for him and Besiktas so that’s something I will take away from working with him.”

Demba Ba was speaking at the Human Appeal Celebrity Gala Football dinner at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London on bank holiday Monday.

  1. Ba back to UP? Maybe 😉

  2. Why does Ba think anyone cares about his opinion? He jumped ship pretty quickly when it suited him.

  3. Ffs sparrow he left when we were relgated,many players do that if a prem club come in for them.I dont have an issue with that tbh 😉

  4. Why wouldn’t he still keep an eye open for one of his old clubs? I think given what he contributed in such a losing cause, we should all think of him fondly, and might hope he thinks fondly of us. And, he has insight into how the man we all seem to want to be our manager works, so surely we should listen to what he has to say.

  5. I think if Bilic is the choice if he rates Ba he will join Sakho as our front 2, not a bad start with Valencia just behind or Zarate,
    With Lee and Magia as back up ( Carroll can go and then we can bring in another )
    Not bad for a start

  6. Sign him up for **** sake and end all this unessessery speculation!.
