Hammers chief denies axe is imminent for Grant

West Ham United's co-owner David Sullivan has informed ESPNsoccernet that Sunday newspaper speculation that Avram Grant has only three games left to save his job are false. Bottom-of-the-table Hammers face the daunting prospect of games against Chelsea, Stoke and Tottenham, and it is being suggested that Grant will become the first Premier League boss to be axed if all three games are lost.

However Sullivan tells ESPNsoccernet that it is wide of the mark to suggest that Grant only has three games left, or that his managerial reign at Upton Park is already under review after the opening three games, which have left West Ham without a point.

The Hammers board appreciate that the opening sequence of fixtures have been unkind to Grant's new managerial job and that the next three games are among the most daunting of the seasons, and that their team would be lucky to get a point, with anything else as massive bonus.

For the corresponding six games this season, West Ham only got two points from the same games in 2009-10.
