Keen flunks audition but claims he can be Mr Nasty


WEST HAM caretaker manager Kevin Keen is adamant he is tough enough to take up the managerial reins at Upton Park despite his audition for the job ending in a heavy defeat.

Goals from Bolo Zenden, Stephane Sessegnon and Cristian Riveros ensured Sunderland extended their superb form in the capital this season and consigned the Hammers to the Premier League’s wooden spoon in the process

Asked if he could be nasty Keen said: “Yes, I can. Spread the word. I feel I can really take the club on and contribute.

“If you ask the players if they want me to take the job, I think you'd get an affirmative answer.”
