Sullivan talking of Bilic deal

SlavcelebratesIrons chairman David Sullivan last night insisted that Slaven Bilic was virtually assured of a new deal and killed off talk of a return to Turkey with Fenerbahce.

The Turkish giants aren’t alone in their admiration of the Irons boss who has had a fabulous start to his career in East London as the club boss following ¬†his departure from Besiktas

And it was ironic that reports emerging this morning (Fri) of interest in him after Sullivan had spoken of his future in his talkSPORT interview last night.

Sullivan said: “He has a three year contract here and at some point before the three years we will sit down and try to persuade him to stay if things go on as they have been going.

“He’s happy here and he’s the least money motivated manager I’ve ever spoken to. He is half a Socialist so he is very keen to look after his staff. He’s not really into money himself.”
