Gold sees the birth of a legend

BilhatSlaven Bilic may be in the early days of becoming a West Ham legend.

That’s the view of David Gold who has been watching the reaction and inter-action between the manager and players very closely over the last few week.

And in an exclusive interview with ClaretandHugh the co chairman said: “I’ve been in the game for 25 years but haven’t seen the sort of spirit and atmosphere there is between this man and a squad of players.

“Just watch as he makes his substitutions – nobody acts up. They accept it immediately because they love the man – have total respect for him.

“To see where he has taken them – and how he’s improved many of them in just half a season – is extraordinary. Everything at West Ham revolves around the man and his way of handling the dressing room is something to behold.

“If he decides something is wrong – as was the case with one of the players no longer with us – he acts quickly to sort the matter out.

“He’s a top manager and a top man. He can stay here a very long time and we may be seeing somebody who is destined to become a club legend.”
