DAVID SULLIVAN will pay West Ham’s new manager just £4,000 a week if they are relegated.

Hammers must shell out £3million to get rid of Gianfranco Zola and his No 2 Steve Clarke.

Zola earns £1.8m a year but owners Sullivan and David Gold will only hand his replacement a £200,000-a-year deal – one of the lowest in the Championship.

An Upton Park insider said: “Relegation would be a financial disaster and the owners will not have players nor the manager on Premier League wages.

“Remember, we’ll be up against Doncaster and Scunthorpe – not Manchester United or Chelsea.”

Former West Ham boss Alan Pardew could be a shock target to take over.

The Southampton chief, who was axed in 2006, led Hammers to promotion five years ago and is well liked by the new regime.

Blackpool’s Ian Holloway is another likely candidate.

Even if Hammers stay up, there is little hope for Zola. The insider added: “The defeat at Liverpool has bitten viciously because of the manner in which the team surrendered.”
