Slav: “A great day for West Ham”


 bilicSlaven Bilic: “It feels great. We don’t have a great record here, we don’t have a record here at all to be fair.

“This is why English football is so attractive and so good basically. If they scored a penalty we could have lost three or four nil.

“However, nobody could say that over 90 minutes we didn’t deserve it, we did and that is what makes me proud of the team. It is a great day for West Ham.”

    I’ve got to be honest, Slav was not my first choice when we had to change our manager last year, maybe because I didn’t know him as manager. But today I can only say he’s the perfect man: young, a true gentleman, modest, ambitious, passionate. I love the respect he shows for the other managers when the games ends, win or lose he’s always the first one to shake their hand. He’s a true leader and has earned the respect of players and fans through work.
    Deeds, not words. BFS, you hear me? 😉
