London, ENGLAND: English Premier League club West Ham United has parted ways with its manager Slaven Bilic following poor run of results.

The Croatian leaves The Hammers rooted 18th in the 20-team table standings with paltry nine points after 11 matches into the season.

Bilic succeeded Sam Allardyce in July 2015, and would then lead West Ham United to 42 victories in 111 matches he took charges of at the club.

His sacking sees him join Ronald Koeman, Frank de Boer and Craig Shakespeare as managers who have lost their jobs this season in the English Premier League.

Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports suggest former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes is in a pole position to replace Bilic at West Ham.

Moyes is out of job since being relieved of his duties by Sunder last summer after failing to guide the club from relegation.
