West Ham shortlist four candidates

West Ham have short listed four candidates for its managerial position.

West Ham were left without a man in charge after Alan Curbishley resigned from the post.

West Ham announced the four candidates which they were looking at to take over.The four candidates being Slaven Bilic,Gianfranco Zola,Roberto Donadoni and Michael Laudrup.

West Ham directors further said Zola and Donadoni had impressed hugely during their interviews and they are looking forward to meeting Laudrup on Monday.

Bilic looks to be the weakest contender because of his prior commitments with Croatia's national side.West Ham however have to wait until England's game on Wednesday to talk to him personally.

Mike Lee,West Ham director said this when speaking to BBC's Radio Five :
"We have a very strong shortlist and it's going to be a tough decision with some exciting candidates.

"From the meetings that have taken place so far the two that have really shone have been Donadoni and Zola."

The biggest advantage for Zola and Donadoni is that they both are Italians which is what the helm of the club want which Curbishley couldn't deliver.(at least as per them!)
