West Ham board make decision on boss Grant
Grant set to stay in charge
After weeks of uncertainty and rumour West Ham have confirmed Avram Grant will be staying on as manager.
Martin O’Neill and Sam Allardyce had been heavily linked to the post over the past month, with O’Neill allegedly approached.
However the Hammers released a statement this morning backing the current boss, where they also slammed reports in a national paper relating to director Karen Brady.
The statement read: West Ham United categorically deny the allegations made in today’s Daily Mirror with regard to Karren Brady, the club’s Vice-Chairman.
Karren has worked tirelessly to improve all aspects of the club’s operation and is extremely disappointed by the nature of these unfounded allegations. West Ham fully intend to identify the source of these unhelpful and untrue comments and remove them from the club. West Ham have placed the matter immediately in the hands of their lawyers.
The club are committed to retaining Avram Grant as manager and have identified potential transfer targets to give us the best possible chance of retaining Premier League status.
