Cressie says the squad is totally supportive of Slav

Aaron Cresswell has given the most forthright backing of manager Slaven Bilic yet!

The manager remains under some pressure but the left back and former Hammer of the Year has made it clear the dressing room is bang behind him.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: “If you ask any of the players, they would say the same, we are fully behind him and fully supportive of him. Hopefully we can turn it around and take that pressure off everyone,

“He is positive and passionate about his job. He is bubbly around the place and wants to stay in a positive mood and, as players, that’s what we want.”

The Hammers are of course without a win since February 4 but they will be hoping to put thinks right when they travel to relegation-threatened Hull on Saturday.

Cresswell said: “There’s no point being negative about the defeats that we’ve had. Certainly all the lads here, the coaching staff and the manager, everyone is giving 110 per cent.

“Course it is not going right at the minute, we want to put that right on Saturday. We know we haven’t been good enough, especially of late, and certainly we look forward to the Hull game.”
