SLAVEN BILIC’S West Ham future came under more pressure after Carlo Ancelotti was axed by Bayern Munich.
The ex-Chelsea boss was sacked in the wake of Bayern’s 3-0 Champions League defeat by PSG.
And he has never hidden his wish to return to London at some stage, as he retains a home in the capital.
Defeat at home by Swansea tomorrow would put Bilic under more pressure.
He admitted: “Sometimes I laugh about it all. Sometimes it puts you in a bad mood.”
Some Hammers fans reacted to the news in Germany by going on social media to demand a change at the helm.
@WestHam_Central tweeted: “Sack Bilic and get Ancelotti NOW.” And @GazVarney added: “Get him for West Ham straight away, don’t miss this opportunity.”
In 2011 the ex-Juventus, AC Milan, PSG and Real Madrid boss, now 58, admitted the prospect of moving to then-Championship West Ham was not one he would reject.
Sack Bilic and get Ancelotti NOW.

He said then: “I would coach West Ham — why not? The atmosphere is amazing. It doesn’t matter if you manage a top team or a smaller team. It’s more important to work.”
Bilic’s Hammers contract runs out at the end of the season and another Italian, former Manchester City chief Roberto Mancini, has also been linked with the job.
Asked if he believed he had the full support of the board, Bilic said: “It’s not a question for me. It’s a question for the people above me.
“All I’m saying is I’m doing my best, I have the will, I have the strength, I have the quality.”
