Sullivan admits regret at Grant appointment
10:30am Tuesday 17th May 2011 in Sport
WEST HAM co-owner David Sullivan has admitted Avram Grant's appointment as manager was a 'bad selection'.
Grant was sacked after the Hammers dropped into the Championship following Sunday's 3-2 defeat at Wigan.
And Sullivan admitted his appointment last summer on a four-year deal was a mistake.
He told The Sun: “Avram is a lovely person but the results sadly speak for themselves that it was a bad selection by the board.
“We all share some blame for the results – the board, the manager and the team. However, the team can only play the tactics and formation they are asked to play.
“We want a manager who will get the best out of the squad and foster a strong team spirit.”
