West Ham say they have "100 per cent faith" in manager Slaven Bilic and his ability to lead the club.

In the wake of a 2-1 loss to Hull which leaves the Hammers six points off the drop zone with eight games left, the club's hierarchy moved to back their manager.

Amid reports about his future, a statement from the West Ham board said: "To end speculation once and for all, the West Ham United Board feel it necessary to announce that we have 100 per cent faith in Slaven Bilic's ability to lead West Ham United."
