[West Ham United coach Slaven Bilic speaking ahead of his side’s FA Cup replay against Manchester United on Wednesday. Bilic got his wish as United’s No10 only made a brief appearance, coming on as a 90th minute substitute, but Louis van Gaal’s men still prevailed 2-1 to advance to the semi-finals] I would rather Rooney didn’t play. 70 per cent, or 100 per cent fit, I would rather he watched the game

[Slaven Bilic compares Premier League football to Hollywood] The Premier League is the best league to work in, to play in, the most competitive one and the most covered one in the whole world. This is the NBA, this is Hollywood. And we are human, so we want to be a part of something big

[West Ham’s Slaven Bilic admits he laughed at ‘Dildo Brothers’ remark] Which comment? I thought about coming with a lawyer today. There have been issues. Come on, say it. It’s funny. It made me laugh but look, I don’t like to talk about some things. What I know about that transfer is that I wanted the player. That has been going on for a long time. We kept it low-profile.

It was the whole summer and it looked promising. From what I know we spoke, not me, but West Ham people and the people who have the power, they spoke to Sporting about Carvalho. We wanted him. I’m smiling, I’m laughing, I’m joking. I’m frustrated because we didn’t get the player, of course. I’ve been trying to get him for a couple of years. It didn’t happen with Perisic at Man United, it didn’t happen with a few players at Chelsea. I’m not angry at anyone. You can’t get all the things you want in life. We still have a team.

[Asked if he feels scapegoated by Sullivan, Bilic said] I told you there are many things I am not happy about but I don’t function like that. If I want to say something, no problem. I am not going to talk through my lawyers – I don’t have a lawyer – or the media. I am expecting if he says something about me to call me, to say this and not go through you guys, although that is best for you

[Bilic revealed players were sold to raise funds for Carvalho] Everybody is talking about how much money we spent on [Marko] Arnautovic and Chicharito [Javier Hernández]. But we sold 11 players. We did not have a massive squad like Arsenal. I was so sure we would do it. We spent £6m, not £26m

You can’t be like a small child and cry and go ‘buy me that Kinder egg’ that my daughter is asking me for every time we go to Waitrose. Then if you don’t buy it she is very disappointed. We’ve got good players. This was one disappointment. This was a crucial position for us that we’ve been trying to get since I came here. It didn’t happen. I can be disappointed, but if we tried everything then you can’t be angry. I wanted Carvalho. Fuck it now, you know what I mean? I have a good team.
