Avram Grant: I treat every game like my last

Avram Grant denies he has been given an ultimatum by the West Ham board of three games to save his job — and maintains he goes into every match like it could be the last.

West Ham start a run of potentially season-defining fixtures against the sides around them in the table at Blackburn today, with reports suggesting the board have demanded at least one victory from the hectic festive schedule.

“This is not true. Nobody from the board spoke with me about it,” Grant declared.

“I speak with the owners all the time, but I didn't speak with them about this specifically.”

Grant quipped: “I will make it more simple for you — I approach every game like it's the last game of my job in football.”
