Grant won’t quit Hammers post

The Irons have won just once in the Premier League so far this

season, leaving them bottom of the table. Grant, though, has

consistently praised the efforts of his players and is confident

the perilous situation can be resolved. He has also been given the

backing of his board, with vice-chairman Karren Brady having

announced that he will be given time to get things right. Grant has

every intention of repaying that faith and is adamant that he will

never walk away from the Upton Park post. “I don’t speak about

myself, but I think what we are doing, with all due respect, is a

good job,” the Israeli said in the Newham Recorder when asked he if

he was the right man for the job. “I think we need to continue with

the way we are playing and the wins will come. I have no intention

of giving up.” Grant insists West Ham’s lowly standing is not a

fair reflection on the quality he has within his ranks and believes

results will come sooner rather than later. “I think this is a very

strange situation, because with one win in 13, you could have said

the football is not good and everything is not good,” he explained.

“But the players have developed 70 per cent and they are better

month to month, so I don’t know what to say to you because this is

a fact.”
