Grant's position is safe, insists Gold

BY foxsports • September 16, 2010

West Ham boss Avram Grant has again been told his job is safe by Hammers co-owner David Gold, who hopes they "quickly climb up" the table.

Grant's position has come under scrutiny with the Hammers currently propping up the Premier League with no points from their opening four games.

The Israeli was appointed as Gianfranco Zola's replacement following last season's battle against the drop but has so far been unable to improve the club's fortunes.

Defeats by Aston Villa, Bolton, Manchester United and Chelsea have left the East London outfit bottom of the pile ahead of Saturday's trip to Stoke.

Grant will not be in attendance at the Britannia Stadium this weekend as he observes the Jewish Holy Day of Yom Kippur.

And Gold has moved to reiterate that there are no plans to part company with the former Chelsea and Portsmouth boss.

Gold told The Sun: "It's four games against clubs who we took two points off last term so we're just behind.

"This will be called a vote of confidence but I assure you it is a proper vote of confidence.

"Against one of the world's best, Chelsea, we saw a spirited performance which we can build on. Avram is safe. We will very quickly climb up."
