Bilic - One of the biggest nights at the Club

Slaven Bilic believes Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino could not have scripted the Hammers famous win over Liverpool any better after seeing Angelo Ogbonna score a dramatic late winner.

The West Ham manager was full of emotions after seeing Ogbonna direct a close-range header into the corner of the net in the final few seconds of extra-time to help set up a Fifth Round tie away at Blackburn.

The goal sparked wild celebrations around the Boleyn Ground and Bilic was left to celebrate one of his finest moments since he joined the Club.

Bilic said: “It was a brilliant game and I was really proud of the boys and everyone who is connected with the Club.

“I think it was a game that will go in the history as one of the biggest nights of the Club because it is the FA Cup, it is the last season at the stadium, it is Liverpool and a late night kick-off.

“The match went into extra-time and we have a last minute winner. All the scenarios were from a good movie director – Tarantino.

“I am proud of the boys and they left their hearts on the pitch. They did everything, we had injuries and had players who were not playing in their positions like Antonio but they still did a brilliant job.

“They were fighting and playing football. We were defending, attacking and as a manager that is all you can ask from your players.

“Every point is important in the Premier League and there are no games that are more important than the other games but this was a special one. To beat Liverpool like that who came with a strong side.

“They had more than enough quality in their side and some fresh legs because they didn't play at the weekend so it was a good combination for them. To cope with them over 120 minutes was brilliant.

“We had a great goal to put us 1-0 in front and I felt we deserved to lead at half-time. We hit the post twice and I think we deserved.

“It was an unlucky goal to concede but to come back after that and press them, defend and attack as a unit, I can talk for hours about this game! We deserved it and I am very proud of the players.”
