Former Aston Villa football manager tipped for West Ham role

19th May 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Former Aston Villa football manager Martin O'Neill is the latest in a string of coaches to have been linked to recently relegated West Ham's now vacant post.

The hapless Hammers were relegated this weekend after succumbing 3-2 to Wigan and are now making preparations for a season in the Championship.

This will include finding a new manager, after football manager Avram Grant was given the boot in the DW Stadium tunnel following the east London side's confirmed exit from the Premier League.

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan is believed to favour Irishman O'Neill, although has offered a stiff rebuttle to would-be managers who have already turned down the role before they have been approached.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Mr Sullivan explained: "We are amused by certain individuals saying they don't want the job when they haven't been considered for it.

"We've had approaches by some good candidates but we treat all applications as confidential."
