West Ham boss Grant remains confident in job

West Ham United boss Avram Grant remains confident in his job despite their 3-0 defeat to Arsenal.

Goals from Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott put Arsenal in command at half-time, before the Dutchman wrapped things up with a penalty on 77 minutes.

Asked about his future, Grant replied: "Why do you ask me this question? Where was these reports?

"You know who gave you the rumours. Ask the person, not ask me.

"When I will give you something, ask me."

At the final whistle the Israeli shook hands with his players as they left the pitch, before applauding the fans and throwing his claret and blue scarf into the stands in what appeared to be a farewell gesture.

However, Grant maintained: "I have done this at the last few games, throw my scarf to the children who are there.

"Today it was emotional to see the reaction of the supporters after the game, we had lost 3-0 and they were so supportive.

"It was touching to see this, so I did what I did. You need to respect the supporters, that is what I did."
