The club's 4-1 loss to Liverpool at the weekend left them in the Premier League's bottom three, having collected just two wins from their opening 11 games of the season.

Bilic's reign has subsequently been brought to an end, with former Manchester United and Everton manager David Moyes waiting in the wings to replace him.

"West Ham United can confirm that Slaven Bilic has today left his position with the club," read a statement on their official website.

"The chairmen and board of West Ham United would like to place on record their thanks and gratitude to Slaven and his team for their services over the past two-and-a-half years, but believe a change is now necessary in order for the club to move forward positively and in line with their ambition.
