Grant back in work

Filed: Friday, 13th January 2012

Former Hammers manager Avram Grant is set to be confirmed as the new boss of Serbian champions Partizan Belgrade.

novosti.rs report this morning that the Israeli - who had been out of work since being fired at West Ham following a disastrous first season in charge - was named as replacement for the outgoing Aleksandar Stanojevic at a board meeting this morning.

The website states that Belgrade offered the vacancy to Grant after being satisfied that he can "achieve results that are planned and expected by the army of fans", despite the 56-year-old having failed miserably at West Ham and in his previous post at Portsmouth.

Grant was hired by David Gold and David Sullivan shortly after they had fired Gianfranco Zola, who had kept West Ham in the Premier League the previous season despite having been forced to work on a shoestring.

West Ham finished bottom of the Premier League in 2010/11 having gained just 33 points - some seven points adrift of safety.
