Slav breaks silence on William Carvalho

bilic-gloomSlaven Bilic has used his London Evening Standard column to speak about William Carvalho for the first time.

Slav writes:  “The other thing which has dominated the last week or so has been our attempt to sign William Carvalho from Sporting Lisbon, an attempt that ultimately failed.

There has been much said and written since. There is much I could say but I don’t want to, not because I am afraid to have my say but because that is not my style. I haven’t said anything before and I don’t want to start now.

My job now isn’t to say what is the truth or who is to blame. My job is to raise the performance from what is a good squad of players which will get even better when everyone is fit.

I can talk about the facts and, yes, I have talked to my friends and my staff about what has gone on and, of course, I don’t agree with many things. Am I going to go public, though? No, that’s not how I work. What is the benefit to anyone to moan about things which have nothing to do with Monday?

We have a good squad. We ideally wanted another one or two and that’s why we offloaded some players, but it didn’t happen and that is the reality.

It was disappointing that we didn’t sign Carvalho because it looked as though it was going to happen and that defensive midfield position was one I have wanted to strengthen for some time. But it doesn’t mean that, because we didn’t sign him, we haven’t done good business this summer.”

  1. Classy response from Bilic and one the board could learn from. But how come his pictures look like he either hasn’t got a scooby or he’s taking a dump?

  2. We don’t need Carvalho. We don’t need him. We have Declan Rice. Just play him, let him grow. You have your answer, for free. Geez!
