The latest news regarding this former West Ham manager

Former West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is reportedly poised to become the new manager of Watford.

The Hornets are sacking Rob Edwards after their slow start to the new season.

Bilic, 54, has been identified by the Hertfordshire outfit as the man they want to replace him with.

The Telegraph has reported that he will be appointed as their boss.

West Ham days

West Ham moved for Bilic back in 2015 and he spent two years with the London club.

He oversaw 111 games in charge of the Hammers and they won 37.8% of games in charge.

Prior to his move to England, he had previously managed Hadjuk Split, Croatia, Lokomotiv Moscow and Besiktas.

Bilic parted company with West Ham in November 2017 and subsequently had a spell at Al-Ittihad Club in Saudi Arabia before landing the West Brom job.

He guided the Baggies to promotion from the Championship at the first time of asking but was sacked during the campaign after in the Premier League.

The ex-defender has since been managing in China with Beijing Guoan but has been available since January.

Watford are currently 10th in the second tier table and have won three out of their opening 10 league outings. They are only a point outside the play-offs as they eye an immediate return to the top flight.
