Slaven Bilic will be the man to lead Albion into the 2019/2020 season after signing a two-year deal to replace Darren Moore. 

Bilic began his managerial career at one of his former playing sides Hadjuk Split. He moved into the role as Croatian Under-21 boss in 2004 before graduating to the head coach of the national side two years later. 

He spent six years in charge of the national side and took Croatia to Euro 2008 and 2012. He failed to qualify for the World Cup in 2010. 

After leaving his role as national coach on good terms, Bilic headed to Russia with Lokomotiv Moscow. He then headed to Turkey with Besikas before heading back to one of his former clubs West Ham. 

In charge of the Hammers Bilic oversaw 87 matches winning 30 matches, drawing 26 and losing 31 times. Bilic then had a short Saudi Arabia in charge of top flight side Al-Ittihad winning only 3 of his 15 games in charge. 

Overall, Bilic has taken charge of 349 games with a win ratio of 47.6%.
