Randolph – We are behind Bilic

West Ham United

West Ham goalkeeper Darren Randolph insists the whole squad are still behind under-pressure manager Slaven Bilic.

The Hammers have endured a disappointing start to the campaign after only picking up 11 points from their first 12 Premier League games.

They finished seventh last season but Bilic’s men are now 17th in the table and just outside the relegation zone on goal difference.

With the pressure on, there is speculation Bilic could be axed and his side face a difficult few weeks against Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Despite their recent form, Randolph insists the whole squad is behind the Croatian as they look to climb the table over the Christmas period.

He said:”We are 100 per cent behind him. There were no problems last year when we were winning games and we’re not going to turn our backs on him now.

“Last season the confidence was massive and that definitely got us through. The manager has always said not to let that little bit of doubt creep in and don’t lose confidence.

“We are no lesser team than we were last year. We are still the same set of players in the main. We are all together and there is no issue here with the manager.”
