Avram Grant lauds Pelligrini's West Ham appointment

Manuel Pelegrini's appointment as West Ham United manager has been lauded by former Ghana coach Avram Grant.

Grant who is now Coach of Indian side North East United told the Sun Pelligrini's appointment show clearly the club's ambitions.

“I think that the problem in West Ham was never the coach," he said. “It's impossible that in the last 10 years all the coaches failed, and they sacked every one."

“David Sullivan is a good owner and an honest guy, but they need to check themselves. How is it possible that all the coaches were wrong, each one of them?"

“I think not even one coach finished their contact in West Ham, not one of them in the last 10 years - and the team didn't do well."

The former Black Stars Coach joined West Ham in the summer of 2010 after taking Chelsea to the Champions League final in 2008 and Portsmouth to the FA Cup final.

He resigned from his role at Fratton Park and agreed to take charge at West Ham two weeks later after agreeing a strategy with the club.
