Bilic: 'We are expecting big things with West Ham'

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic is hoping to bring more new additions into the squad and make the Club even stronger as he prepares for his first season in charge at the Boleyn Ground

Bilic has flown to Andorra with the squad for the second leg of the UEFA Europa League first qualifying round tie with FC Lusitans, having been working hard with the players at a fitness camp in Ireland, and has already been impressed with the attitude that the squad have showed in Cork.

The Club have already signed Darren Randolph, Pedro Obiang and Dimitri Payet this summer and Bilic hopes he will be able to make the squad even stronger over the coming weeks

Bilic said: “Our plan is to bring in more players. We are trying to bring in players who we believe can lift us to another stage and make us better

“We have already signed a few players and brought them into a good team. Sometimes they will click straight away and sometimes it will take a bit of time.

“We are aware of that and we are going to try and make that adjustment period as short as possible.

“We are expecting big things with West Ham. We are not big headed and will take it step by step but the early signs are very promising.”
