Slaven Bilic

Slaven Bilic expected to be named new West Brom manager

West Brom miss out on promotion

West Brom were relegated from the Premier League in 2018 after finishing in 20th spot with 31 points.

Towards the end of their latest stint in England’s top-flight, Darren Moore would help turn results around, as the Baggies lost just one of their last five. But it was too little, too late.

After such a positive end to their 2017/18 season, Moore was then given the task of winning promotion back to the Premier League in the 2018/19 campaign.

However, Moore would be sacked in March of 2019.

West Brom would finish the season in 4th place in the Championship. They then faced Aston Villa in the play-off semi-finals, losing the tie 4-3 on penalties.

According to the Mirror, they have finally found their man in Slaven Bilic.

Bilic is said to have been interviewed for the job on Tuesday evening, with the Mirror claiming that he is now West Brom’s number one choice.
