Slaven Bilic: Contract cancelled by mutual consent

Former Croatia, Everton and West Ham manager Bilic, 44, took charge of Lokomotiv last summer but could only guide the club to a ninth-placed finish in the 16-team Premier League - the club's worst finish since 1991.

A statement on Lokomotiv's official website said Bilic's contract had been cancelled by mutual consent.

His replacement Kuchuk, 53, is the former manager of Kuban Krasnodar, Salyut Belgorod and Sheriff Tiraspol.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
