- Slaven Bilic is expected to be booted out as manager of West Brom anytime soon
- The tactician joined the club last summer and guided them to the PL in his first season
- The Baggies have only managed one win in their last thirteen games and Allardyce is being considered
West Bromwich Albion manager Slaven Bilic is expected to be fired any moment from now despite him guiding the Baggies to a 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Tuesday night, December 15.
UK outlet talkSPORT are reporting that the 52-year-old could be sacked with former Bolton Wanderers’ boss Sam Allardyce among potential managers to take up the plum job.
West Brom put up an impressive show after they came from behind to earn a point against potential PL winners City at the Etihad Stadium.
But it was gathered that Bilic’s fate has been decided before the encounter as the club is desperate in getting a manager to save them from relegation.
The manager was appointed on a two-year contract when he replaced Darren Moore last year summer and was able to guide the team back to the Premier League after just one year in charge.
West Brom has only managed to win just one game in their last thirteen league matches and they are just two points away from the relegation zone.
Reports say the club spent the whole of Tuesday deliberating on which manager to succeed Bilic and there different names that came up as a possible replacement for Bilic, but Allardyce has a better chance.
Mark Hughes and Nigel Pearson are reportedly being considered, but Allardyce is a strong figure to take over.
talkSPORT host Simon Jordan had disclosed that Bilic has been under unfair pressure as the club never provided the tactician with adequate resources. He said:
“I don’t get the impression from Slaven Bilic that his players aren’t responding to him, he’s just got a certain amount of tools.
“I don’t think West Brom are a bad side, they looked in good nick at Man United, they were brave and ambitious."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Jurgen Klopp has admitted he admires Jose Mourinho's turn around in his managerial career since leaving Man United to join Tottenham.
The Special One seemed to have been out of touch with winning trophies when he was sacked by the Red Devils in December 2018.
However, his first full season with Spurs has seen the Lily Whites convincingly moved to the top of the Premier League table.
