The hardest man in football heading for the Premier League

Slaven Bilic could be heading for the Premier League after West Ham United manager Alan Curbishley resigned this afternoon. The Croatian manager is the bookies favourite to succeed Curbishley as the Hammers boss and I, along with many others, would be delighted to see Bilic come to England.

Bilic spent a season at Upton Park where he made 48 appearances and is now likely to return to the East London club but this time as manager. He is widely regarded as one of the hardest men in football. His touchline antics, along with his ear piercing will be a welcome sight in the Premier League should he eventually take the hot seat at the club.
