Noble welcomes new boss Bilic

Mark Noble has welcomed new manager Slaven Bilic to West Ham United.

The midfielder is the Club’s longest-serving player and has played under five full-time managers in his eleven seasons as a member of the Hammers’ first-team squad.

With that experience behind him, the Academy of Football graduate is looking forward to working with new boss Bilic – a former West Ham player himself and a manager who has cut his teeth during successful spells with the Croatian national side and Turkish club Besiktas.

“After four good seasons with Sam Allardyce, who has put the Club in a strong position to move forward, the appointment of Slaven Bilic is exciting for everyone,” said the No16.

“I'm sure all West Ham fans are looking forward to having one last memorable season at Upton Park, so we need your support more than ever this year. Come on you Irons!”

Noble is the Club’s all-time record Premier League appearance maker with 222 top-flight games in Claret and Blue under his belt. He has made a total of 321 appearances for West Ham, scoring 35 goals, and was voted Hammer of the Year in 2014.

The 2015/16 Barclays Premier League fixtures will be announced on Thursday 18 June. Keep a close eye on and our social media platforms for all the latest updates!
