West Ham United co-owner David Gold is sure Avram Grant is the right man to lead the club forward.
The Israeli signed a four-year contract at Upton Park after he guided Portsmouth to the FA Cup final last term under difficult conditions and, after Gold held discussions with him, his decision soon became an easy one.
Speaking to reporters, he said:"When you're searching for a manager the most important thing you look at is the chemistry.
"By the time you meet them, you've done all the reading and you know what they look like because you've seen them on television hundreds of times.
"When you meet with the person, though, you have to have that camaraderie or that instant chemistry that makes you think 'I can work with this person' and that was the case with Avram.
"He was head and shoulders above everyone else. He was superb in his company, I felt comfortable with him.
"We talked football and a three-hour meeting with him just flew by and I knew that was our man."
