|Balic in action for Hadjuk Split
Slaven Bilic's arrival at West ham signals a new era at the club. He has wasted no time in assembling an impressive coaching team that includes those who assisted him during his impressive spell as U21 and full manager of the Croatian National team.
West ham fans will be hoping that his role at the club will attract young talent, including the very best from his native country. Not surprisingly, attentions have turned to young Andrija Balic - reckoned by some to be 'the new Modric'. Tottenham tried to sign the youngster last Summer, but his father (who is also his agent) blocked the move stating that at 16 years old, he was too young to move abroad.

Meanwhile, VERYWESTHAM continue their scouting trip to Croatia where they have unearthed another potential Hammers target - young Rori Maric. On top scout noted that the kid reminded him of Ivica Bolic - the Bosnian who ended Man United unbeaten home record in the Champions league by scoring for visiting Fenerbahce in 1996!
