Bilic confirms backroom team


Slaven Bilic has confirmed his desire to bring in a Croatian back room team to help him manage West Ham.

Fellow Croatians Nicola Jurcevic, Edin Terzic and Miljenko Rak are set to take up important positions in his technical staff subject to agreeing contracts and work permits being granted.


On Jurcevic, Bilic told the Sun “My first team coach. We had six years with the national team, then in Russia and Besiktas. Hopefully he will join me at West Ham”

On Terziz he said  “My second assistant, a great coach. Really good with players. He worked for Borussia Dortmund and has great experience”

On Rak he added “My fitness coach. Won Olympic medals as Croatia handball team fitness coach. Then he was in many sports. He’s a legend”

The Boleyn Insider yesterday suggested Slaven Bilic is about to announce a new goal keeping coach after the departure of Bobby Mimms.  I wonder what Ludo Miklosko is up to? It would be fantastic if Bilic managed to persuade the West Ham hero to come out of retirement.
