Avram Grant Unveiled - Nearly
Avram Grant is set to be named the new West Ham manager. There has still been no official announcement but speaking to the BBC David Gold spoke about West Ham's new manager leaving the BBC with little doubt he was talking about Avram Grant.
"After an hour, we knew we could work with this manager. We are very optimistic.
"I think it's time for the football club to get some stability with people that have been there, done that and got the T-shirt."
"What we need is a manager who has achieved, has experience. We are not in a positon where we can take on young, inexperienced managers. We did ask Franco to keep us up and he did that, but I think we need to move on from that. New owners like to choose their own people. Like all managers, our new manager will bring his own people in, and we are comfortable with that.""
"We are over the worst at West Ham, we've found most of the skeletons in the cupboard and are looking forward to a bright, exciting future.
"There are still many problems and most of all is the debt at the football club. We believe it is a great club and we can turn this round."
The BBC say to expect an official announcement in the next 48 hours.
