The West Ham owners have acted swiftly to try and avoid relegation ... oh no wait ...
West Ham has released a short statement saying,
"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."
The statement doesn't say whether Grant has resigned or sacked. Recent comments by Grant saying that he wouldn't resign presumably means that he was fired. The statement from the club is pointedly devoid of any thanks for Grant's 'service' to West Ham.
