Hammers ditch boss Grant

Published Add your comment

West Ham have parted company with manager Avram Grant in the wake of the club's relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

The Hammers went down after squandering a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 at fellow strugglers Wigan. And just over an hour later, a statement on the West Ham website confirmed the club had relieved the Israeli of his duties.

The statement read: "The club can confirm that Avram Grant is no longer the manager of West Ham United. First-team coach Kevin Keen will take charge of the team for the final home match of the season against Sunderland on Sunday 22 May."

Grant also suffered relegation last season when he was in charge of Portsmouth.

Having resigned at Pompey, he took over at Upton Park last summer, signing a four-year deal.
