West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has evoked a mixed response after angrily responding to a tweet.
The social media message in question was referring to the Sky Sports story that the club will target Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic if manager Slaven Bilic is sacked.
Brady responded by claiming that the club are standing by their current boss.
yes it is media crap, and NO foundation to it. My Chairman issued a statement about Slaven last week, and NOTHING has changed. https://t.co/X9XTPtz0Sz

The fans seem to be divided where Bilic is concerned, as the club have failed to build on last season’s seventh-placed finish and are even among a relegation battle.
As it stands, the East London outfit are eight points above the bottom three with six games remaining in the Premier League season.
The team have only won 10 of their 32 top-flight fixtures and have been on the losing end 16 times.
As well as the poor results, the new London Stadium has caused friction, while the club were forced into selling their best player Dimitri Payet to Marseille in January.
Despite the difficult season, Brady seems adamant that Bilic will remain in charge for the time being.
Some supporters agree with her stance, while others have taken a different view.

@karren_brady You have taken the soul out of the club for a cheap deal on an athletics stadium and increased revenues
