BILIC WOULD LOVE A WEST HAM RETURN
c/p The Mirror - UK
SLAVEN BILIC would jump at the chance of a dramatic return to West Ham as the pressure mounts on under-fire boss Alan Curbishley.
Curbishley is believed to be three games from the sack after his disastrous three-month spell in charge has left West Ham stuck in the relegation zone - and the former Hammers defender is on his hit-list of potential successors.
And Mirror Sport can reveal Bilic, who masterminded Croatia's Euro 2008 qualifying win over England last year, is keen and watching developments with great interest.
Bilic was on Eggert Magnusson's list of candidates when he hired Curbishley - and the Icelandic owner is considering a change before it is too late.
