What will be next for Slaven Bilic and his backroom team?

It has now been five days since the dark Monday morning in which Slaven Bilic and the majority of his loyal Coaching Staff were sacked by the Owners of West Ham United, David Gold, and David Sullivan.

But, surely this can’t be the end of a successful Managerial Career for the Croat and his bright Coaches? What could be his next move and where will he end up? With plenty of options on the table, today, we attempt to answer that question.

Although admitting to The Evening Standard that he is considering taking a break from Management, there are some seemingly irresistible offers doing the rounds in World Football.

The early obvious one would be the vacant Everton Job, a club in which Bilic enjoyed a fine spell at during the 1990’s, the Croat was much-loved at Goodison Park but there seems to be another man heavily in contention.

Ironically, that Manager is Sam Allardyce, the Hammers Boss from 2011 to 2015, as he appears days away from officially taking charge on Merseyside, Bilic is currently 50-1.

Another big Job that has become unoccupied in recent times and that is the US National Team vacancy after the departure of Bruce Arena following their failure to qualify for The World Cup in Russia.

The Croat is no stranger to International Management, having guided his own Nation for six years between 2006 and 2012, there is no doubt that he has all the credentials for the role.

However, he is not being tipped as one of the front-runners to take over, one vacancy that he is favoured for however is the Job in charge of SPFL side Rangers.

Having sacked their Boss Pedro Caixinha after a run of disappointing form, they are in need of a revival and Bilic may just be the man to deliver that, he can be found at 33-1.

If “Super Slav” wanted to dip down into The Division below his previous employment, the former club of his successor David Moyes, Sunderland, are currently hunting for their next Boss after the departure of Simon Grayson.

The Black Cats are sitting ugly in 24th after a calamitous start, but Bilic is more of an outsider for the role at 40-1, however, one would feel that he may be looking for a role at a slightly more successful club.

So, after becoming the fourth Managerial casualty of the Premier League season, there are plenty of offers and opportunities for Slaven Bilic to have a look at, but it’s still unclear which one he will take.

One thing is for sure though, Football just wouldn’t be the same without Bilic in a high-profile role prompting many to sincerely hope that he will return to Management swiftly, but do you think you know where he will go next? Get in touch with us via Twitter @MooreThanAClub to join the debate.
