Bilic the Last to be Interviewed
The Times say that Scott Duxbury and technical director Gianluca Nani have been in discussion with Slaven Bilic’s camp to meet the Croatia manager in the next 48 hours and before Croatia's game against England. The paper claim he will be the last of the seven short-listed candidates to be interviewed.
Roberto Donadoni and John Collins were interviewed on Friday, followed by Gianfranco Zola yesterday, while face-to-face soundings with Gerard Houllier, Roberto Mancini and Michael Laudrup will be completed tomorrow. The Times say that Bilic approached West Ham last month through an intermediary to tell them he was interested in becoming the next manager.
The Independent claim that Zola and Donadoni have both impressed the West Ham board. The paper says that West Ham have now whittled down the short-list to Zola, Donadoni and Bilic.
