Official: Curbishley Resigns As Hammers Boss

West Ham United gaffer Alan Curbishley has resigned from his post with immediate effect, the club has confirmed...

Despite the turmoil St James' Park at present involving Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan and Magpies owner Mike Ashley, this early part of the Premiership season has claimed a different managerial victim.

Alan Curbishley has had enough and has walked out of Upton Park. The former Charlton gaffer has failed to win over the majority of the Irons' faithful since joining the club in December 2006 and his reign at the club is now at an end.

Curbishley and his much-maligned Hammers had begun to turn a corner of late, with the 4-1 hammering of Blackburn at the weekend particularly pleasing.

However, it all went wrong on transfer deadline day. Curbs was said to be furious with the sale of George McCartney to Sunderland, while his coveted right-back didn't materialise. Chelsea duo Paulo Ferreira and Juliano Belletti had been linked with the club.

Earlier in the week, skipper Lucas Neill confronted the boss, apparently deeming him 'uninspiring'. And, with highly-rated Croatia coach Slaven Bilic linked with the hotseat, perhaps the departure isn't a complete shock.

A statement issued via the club's official website reads: "West Ham United can confirm that we have accepted Alan Curbishley's resignation as we feel it is in the best interests of both parties.

"We wish Alan all the success in the future. A shortlist of candidates is being drawn up and an announcement will be made in due course about the new West Ham United manager."

Long-Term Interests

Just hours before the latest developments, the club stated: "Investment has ensured the club can keep together its strong spine of England internationals along with players with proven international pedigree.

"Unsurprisingly, this summer we received a number of significant bids for leading players - in itself emphasising the high number of quality internationals at Alan Curbishley's disposal - and all were rejected.

"However, in particular, the transfers of Anton Ferdinand and George McCartney, along with the release of Freddie Ljungberg, were right for the club and decisions had to be taken based on our best long-term interests."

However, this explanation clearly wasn't enough to appease unsettled Curbishley.
