Avram Grant backs Matthew Upson to stay at West Ham
West Ham manager Avram Grant is convinced captain Matthew Upson will stay at Upton Park this season — but his long-term future remains up in the air.
Grant said: “Ninety per cent of the squad will stay and Matthew Upson is in that ninety per cent who will stay here. We like him, he's good for us and a good captain and he will stay.”
Grant said Scott Parker would play today against Bolton and would be at West Ham “in the years to come”.
