West Ham manager, Slaven Bilic has questioned the integrity of club owners in the premier league following the sack of Watford’s manager Quique Sanchez Flores.
The former Atletico Madrid’s manager was sacked despite reaching the club’s target of stirring the club above relegation, and led Watford to the F.A Cup’s semi-finals, impressively defeating Arsenal in the quarter finals but eventually got sacked by the club and West Ham’s manager was quick to lash out.Slaven Bilic said his sacking was ‘crazy’ and ‘sick’ in a blast at the treatment of Premier League bosses.
‘It’s crazy. I’m sorry for Quique, people are saying in that kind of a job that it’s quite common but it’s not right, it’s completely wrong,’ Bilic said.’They’ve had a fantastic season. As far as I know, if somebody had offered Watford that… When I came here before the season everyone said they were likely candidates to go down like every other team that comes up. et they were never in danger and especially until January, February they were top eight, top 10. Add to that they play good football, and add to that in they were in the semi-final of the FA Cup, by beating Arsenal away.‘They had a great season, the whole place was buzzing, it was a season to be proud of. It says it’s more important how you finish than how you start but it is nonsense for me.‘People say it’s common in Europe, it’s common in England, but it’s completely wrong, it’s sick.’
Bilic’s West Ham team sit sixth on the table, and faces Stoke City at the Britannia in the final game of the season.
