(Reuters) - West Ham United have sacked manager Slaven Bilic after they dropped into the relegation zone following Saturday's damaging 4-1 home defeat by Liverpool, the Premier League club said on Monday.
The Croatian replaced Sam Allardyce in June 2015 and led the club to a seventh-placed finish in his first season. He also oversaw their move to the London Stadium last season, but has won just two out of 11 league games in the current campaign.
"West Ham United can confirm that Slaven Bilic has today left his position with the club," West Ham said in a statement.
