Slaven Billic has finally recruited the last of his West Ham back room staff with the appointment of Nikola Jurcevic as his assistant manager joining first team coach Edin Terzic, head of performance Miljenko Rak, goalkeeping coach Chris Woods and coaching assistant Julian Dicks. Jurcevic and Billic worked together at Lokomotiv Moscow and Besiktas as well as with the Croatian national side.
Jurcevic told the official west ham website “I am very happy that I can start work at the Club, I am very motivated for the future and think we have a good team. I hope we will have a very good season,“I have worked with Slaven for a number of years with the Croatian national team, Lokomotiv Moscow and Besiktas. He called me about West Ham and I said yes straight away.“I am very excited to work in England because I think that Premier League is one of the best in the world.“I know it is a big opportunity for me and I am happy to work in the Premier League, live in London and work for a big club like West Ham.“I know Slaven well and when I started my career as a coach and was manager in Croatia, Slaven called me when he was national coach and we worked together for six-years. We are good friends but we have a similar view on football and we work really well together.“I am professional, have a big experience in football having worked in Belgium, Austria, Germany and have played in the big tournaments in Europe. I also have the experience as a coach and will do my best for West Ham. I hope we will be successful.
Talks a good talk, let it be hoped that his visa difficulties weren't a bad omen! - Ed
