Wayne Bridge has defended manager Avram Grant against accusations that he is not positive enough.
The West Ham boss has been criticised for his dour demeanour at times in the past, with some people suggesting he lacks passion.
Having been a part of the Upton Park dressing room since his move from Manchester City in January, Bridge insists nothing could be further from the truth.
The left-back has been impressed by Grant's attacking philosophy and says he is also very good at motivating the players.
"Avram is a character," Bridge said in The Sun.
"Sitting in team meetings, you realise what a positive person and manager he is.
"Everything is geared to making the players feel good about themselves and going on to the pitch with the right attitude.
"Avram wants everyone to be positive on the pitch, to get forward and play attractive, attacking football."
