Slav: This gives me the shivers

bilicSlaven Bilic has taken in a trip to the Oympic Stadium during the international break and admits: “It gives you the shivers.”

He had not been at the stadium for four months and said: “It has changed a lot. I mean it’s brilliant, it gives you shivers. We are really looking forward to it and it makes you really excited when you come here.

Speaking to he said: “It’s a great move for the club, it’s a great move for everyone, it will be brilliant to see 54,000 Hammers under one roof. We are really looking forward to next season.

“It feels real and it’s still going to change. We are going to have West Ham seats and it is going to look even better.

“We want to finish this season well so we give a good farewell to the Boleyn Ground and come to the new Stadium as high as possible.

“The players are talking about it and they asked me about the new Stadium. I said it’s a big step up for the Club, it shows the ambition of the Chairmen and the Board and they are trying to make a Club that is already a huge, massive  even bigger. This shows their ambition and I think we’re going the right way.”

“The Premier League is attracting the best players in Europe and in the world, and then if you add to that the Stadium move and that we are the Club from London that puts you in a position that you have no limitations.

“But you have to stay on the ground, and we have to plan slowly and we have to be realistic. There are no borders, to be fair, the sky is the limit, but step by step.”
