Everton’s David Moyes backs Avram Grant to rescue West Ham United from relegation
Everton’s manager, David Moyes has come out and backed Avram Grant’s ability to rescue West Ham United from relegation in the 2010-2011 season. Grant was appointed as West Ham manager in the summer after Gianfranco Zola was dismissed
from this position. In the 2009-2010 season, the side barely survived in the English Premier League. The disastrous 2009-2010 season prompted them to hire Avram Grant who led Chelsea to the final of the UEFA Champions League in the 2007-2008 season after Jose
Mourinho had left the London club with mutual consent.
After spending some time at Chelsea, Grant was hired by Portsmouth as their manager but English league minnows were relegated last season under Grant due to their financial troubles. Nonetheless, the Israeli national led Portsmouth
to the F.A. Cup final where they eventually lost to in normal time after Kevin Prince Boateng missed a penalty kick in the second half. Regardless, West Ham’s season thus far under Grant has been woeful to say the least.
The Hammers are currently in the bottom three of the English Premier League. Not only that, their dire form in the Premier League suggests that they are prime candidates once again for relegation in the 2010-2011 season. As West
Ham take on Everton in their league encounter on Tuesday night, David Moyes has backed his counterpart to guide West Ham to safety come the end of this season.
Moyes stated, "I know Avram Grant and I think he's done a good job at the clubs he's been with. He did a good job when he took over at Chelsea and a good job at Portsmouth. I think the West Ham job was a tough one. The situation
they were in was always going to make it hard for it to be turned around. I think he went into a difficult situation and I hope he does well, but obviously after we beat them.”
He added, "There is a lot of flak flying about. There is somebody every day saying he shouldn't be in his job but he handles it very well. He knows he has got a difficult job but everybody would have to say he has gone about it
with a lot of dignity."
West Ham will be hoping that they can get a favorable result against Moyes’ side as their fortunes dwindle from bad to worse in the English Premier League. The game between Everton and West Ham will also be seen as a make or break
one for Grant who is believed to be just one loss away from dismissal as West Ham United manager.
