Slaven Bilic has denied the suggestion that he’s too gentle to his players and to drag West Ham out of losing run to the top of the Premier League table.

The Hammers have lost theiemr opening three games and currently sit at the bottom of the table.

Bilic believe things will turn around in their first home match against Huddersfield Town on Monday night – Bilic claims he’s tough with his players when it necessary.

“I don’t see myself as an especially nice guy,” he told SoccerSoccer Saturday. “I also can lose my temper and I was doing that very recently – or last season. When I feel it’s needed. I do that.

“O think I have it (a fair factor). I am motivated. I am hungry and the lads know if they don’t perform they ain’t going to play and that is the biggest punishment for them. You can’t say that no matter the players are playing that they’re players.

“If they don’t perform well, they’re losing their place in the team. That has always been and is always going to be the biggest punishment for the players.

“I am demanding a lot from the players. I don’t want them to be afraid, of course, I want them to stay confident.

“I don’t see that as a problem. If, for you, being hard or being a rocket means I’m going to slag the players here in front of the cameras then an definitely one of them.

“But then, I don’t know who is loke that in football nowadays – and I don’t want to be that.”
