West Ham United Sack Avram Grant

Avram, You're The Man.

West Ham United have sacked Avram Grant in the immediate aftermath of their relegation from the Premier League. Grant was sacked after West Ham’s 3-2 defeat against Wigan Athletic. According to The Guardian, he was told he was dismissed while in the players’ tunnel after the loss to Wigan.

After previously managing Chelsea, Portsmouth and most recently West Ham United, it’ll be interesting to see if another English club will give the Israeli a chance. Whether they do or not, the reality is that West Ham United will be playing Championship football next season. And that many of their current players, including Scott Parker, Demba Ba, Robbie Keane, Matthew Upson and Frederic Piquionne, won’t be playing for the Hammers next season.

The challenge for co-owners Gold and Sullivan will be finding a manager who is willing to take charge of a Championship side. Someone like Alan Curbishley or Martin O’Neill could fit the bill, but both men would prefer to manage a Premier League side. Slaven Bilic has been mentioned but he’s focused on getting Croatia qualified for the Euro 2012 tournament. Who else is out there that you think would be a good fit for the West Ham manager position?
