West Ham legend Cottee: I wanted Bilic not Grant

West Ham United legend Tony Cottee is unimpressed by the appointment of Avram Grant as new manager.

The former England striker isn't convinced the Israeli is the right man to replace sacked Gianfranco Zola.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: "I am really, really concerned about the future.

"(Slaven) Bilic was my choice before Zola and he would have been my choice now.

"He is a West Ham man and the fans would have loved to see him arrive. Avram has a lot to prove."
