Slaven Bilic to leave Besiktas
Slaven Bilic will leave Besiktas at the end of the season, increasing speculation that he may replace Sam Allardyce as West Ham United manager. The Croatian coach, who spent one season at West Ham as a player in the mid-1990s, will remain in charge of Besiktas two remaining games before leaving the club. Bilic spent six, mainly successful years with the Croatia national team before taking over at Dynamo Moscow for one season. He has been the manager of Besiktas since 2013.
Tomas Sivok needs surgery
Besiktas have confirmed that defender Tomas Sivok will undergo surgery on his thumb. The Czech Republic international suffered a head injury in the second half and was taken to hospital. However, tests showed that Sivok did not actually suffer any damage to his face or skull but that he injured his thumb instead.
