West Ham sack Avram Grant


West Ham United have announced the departure of manager Avram Grant, following their relegation to the Championship. The news was confirmed on the club’s official website immediately after their 3-2 defeat to Wigan Athletic.

The Hammers had to beat Wigan to have any hope of beating the drop, and despite leading 2-0 at Half Time. But after the break they collapsed, losing to an injury time winner from Charles N’Zogbia.

The defeat confirmed their relegation to the Championship and the club quickly issued a statement confirming the department of Grant.

“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 22nd May.”
