Grant doesn't communicate, says McCarthy
Friday 15 April 2011
Benni McCarthy has revealed that he cannot remember when he last spoke to West Ham manager Avram Grant. The South African striker recently had his contract at Upton Park terminated, having been taken out of the 25-man Premier League squad.
"I don't really know when I last spoke to him," McCarthy said. "But he's got a lot on his plate at the moment. I'm sure he could help his position if he'd maybe take a little bit more time to speak to players. That's what you do if you are a manager and you have a good relationship with players, you get results."
McCarthy also acknowledged that his fitness problems were partly self-inflicted. "I let myself down," he admitted. "I just went hiding under a rock because I couldn't deal with the fact I was injured."
