West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: Our problems stopped me naming my daughter!

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic admits he's been so obsessed by their problems that he's forgotten about naming his new baby daughter.

Bilic admits his mind is filled with nothing but plans to improve his side's dreadful start to the season.

He said: “I said to my assistants that I feel very strange because I got a baby girl a few days ago and I think totally about football.

“That's not good! Of course I adore her and for her I would walk on my knees to Australia.

“But when they asked me if I gave her a name I said, 'Name? No I still haven't'. That's football, I have a job to do."
