Slaven Bilic’s number two Edin Terzic has penned a farewell message to West Ham fans.
“First of all I would like to thank all fans, the chairmen, the board and all employees at West Ham for your support and patience,
“Thanks to all players than have been with us during the last 2.5 years. I wish the injured players a quick recovery.
“Also I would like to thank all my colleagues, the whole staff and academy for all your efforts.
“I wish the new manager and his staff the best of luck to achieve all targets and to take this wonderful club forward!
“On behalf of my family I would like to thank the people I met in the wonderful city of London. Many became our friends and made us feel at home from the start.
“2.5 years just flown by. Lots of ups and downs in a game that is full of mistakes. I won’t forget all the great memories we achieved together and I’m proud that I was part of the journey.
“The biggest thanks to Slaven. You never lost your belief and respect!
“I’m forever blowing bubbles.”
They should have gone before Slav to bring in fresh ideas but Slav is loyal. Rio offered to come in and be defensive coach last season but no.
Think if they left last season and go in a more knowledgable Tactical astute & strict #2 Slav would have done better.
Julian Dicks and Miljenko Rak have also left
Dicks was a CB but nevered seem to bring much. Have said it before & hoped some would have happened over summer but we need a complete restaff.
