Alan Curbishley Resigns As West Ham United Manager


Alan Curbishley has handed in his resignation as manager of West Ham United. In a statement released by the club, West Ham confirms it has accepted the resignation, and has not yet announced any plans for a successor.

Curbishley became manager of the club in December 2006, several months after leaving his long-time job at Charlton Athletic.  During his time as manager, he lead West Ham out of relegation in the 2006/07 season with wins in seven of the team’s last nine Premier League matches, and finished tenth in the league the following season.  West Ham won two of its first three matches to start the current season, but Curbishley was reportedly upset at the team’s transfer policy.  West Ham sold Anton Ferdinand and George McCartney last month to fellow Premier League side Sunderland, but was otherwise mostly inactive during the summer transfer window. West Ham’s next league match is September 13th against West Bromwich Albion.
