The football may not have been the most exciting, but former Croatia coach Slaven Bilić managed to provide lots of entertainment in the studio in England…

Bilić was part of a star-studded ITV team commenting on matches at EURO 2016 and he has just been voted by the public as the best pundit on TV in the UK during the tournament.

The West Ham boss joined a host of ex-players on the ITV team, including Ian Wright and Lother Matthaus, whilst rivals the BBC had the likes of Alan Shearer, Gianluca Vialli and Rio Ferdinand as guests. After a poll by leading UK paper the Mirror, Bilić was voted as the best of the bunch. Former Arsenal striker Henry was second, followed by Shearer and another former Arsenal striker Ian Wright.

Bilić had some classic moments during his spell in the studio commenting on the first part of the tournament, including dropping the F-bomb live, having a dig at German star Lother Matthaus and jumping on the table to celebrate a goal scored by one of his West Ham players.

The entertaining former defender also won over fans with his ‘charm’ and ‘knowledge of the game’. Bilić was one of the first names mentioned in the UK media to replace Roy Hodgson as England manager after Hodgson resigned following their loss to Iceland.
