Besiktas have released a statement on their website this afternoon denying rumours that head coach Slaven Bilic has been sacked.
The statement read: “Rumours that Besiktas have sacked Slaven Bilic are false, the board will hold a board meeting today.”
Reports in the Turkish press claimed that Besiktas had parted ways with Bilic however, the Croatian manager still has a year left on his contract.
Bilic did reveal on TV this week that he expects the board to fire him following the 1-0 defeat against Konyaspor.
Besiktas crashed out of the title race following the loss against Koynaspor at the Osmanlı stadium in Ankara. The Istanbul based team take on Galatasaray on Sunday and Bilic will be in charge unless the board decide otherwise following their meeting.
The Besiktas board released a later statement which read: “Slaven Bilic will be manager of Beşiktaş until the end of the season, we will hold another meeting at the end of the season to discuss his future which is normal procedure as he has a year remaining on his contract.”
