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.”
