West Bromwich Albion has hired Slaven Bilic as manager on a two-year deal.
West Brom is attempting to return to the Premier League.
“I’m delighted with this opportunity of course,” said Bilic, whose last job was with the Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad. “We want to improve on the pitch and Albion have convinced me they want to return to the Premier League. Albion have a short-term project and a long project and they do not clash. They made it clear they wanted me to be the one to lead them in this and I didn’t think twice once they had spoken to me.”
