Recommended Posts

Former West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has been named as the new coach of Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad.

The Croatian, who was sacked by West Ham in November last year, signed the deal with Al-Ittihad in New York on Thursday.

"Bilic will train Ittihad throughout the upcoming phase of the sports season," a club statement read.

"The board wished Bilic all success in his new mission to help Ittihad regain its outstanding performances."

Al-Ittihad currently play in the Saudi Professional League, and have opened their 2018-19 campaign with three losses and one draw in four games.

The club sacked former Argentina international Ramon Diaz - who managed Oxford United in 2004-05 - after their poor start.

Al-Ittihad won their last of eight league titles back in 2009. They have won the Asian Champions League twice, in 2004 and 2005.
