Bilic's Croatia side ended England's bid to reach Euro 2008

Slaven Bilic has announced he will quit as Croatia coach when their World Cup qualifying campaign ends in November.

The 40-year-old former West Ham and Everton defender has been linked with several Premier League jobs.

He told the Sportske Novosti newspaper: "I will stay at the helm until the end of this qualifying campaign but not a second more. Four years is enough."

Croatia trail England by five points in World Cup Qualifying Group 6, but beat them twice in qualifying for Euro 2008.
