West Ham United are ready to sack Avram Grant and replace him with Martin O’Neill this weekend, sources have told Sky Sports.
Grant’s position has been under scrutiny for weeks following West Ham’s poor start to the season.
However, he looked to have seen of the threat after guiding them to just one defeat in the last seven games.
But now sources have told Sky Sports News that Grant will be sacked after Saturday’s match with Arsenal – no matter what the result is.
Skysports.com has also been told that the Hammers have already met with former Villa chief O’Neill – who looks ready to step back into management at Upton Park. (Sky Sports)
Well this is interesting. What happens if Avram Grant guides West Ham to a sparkling victory over Arsenal on today? Is this just a ruse by the club’s co-owners to perk some life into the Israeli and his team? Maybe they will put out this rumour the morning before every fixture in the hope that they can escape the drop?
Talk of Martin O’Neill being ushered into Upton Park has been circulating for a few weeks now and the former Celtic and Aston Villa man had reportedly turned down advances from David Gold and David Sullivan, indeed Sam Allardyce was also in the frame so it’s hard to know what or who to believe at this point.
