Avram Grant could return to Chelsea in advisory role

User Rating: / 0

Former Chelsea manager and also the once the director of football at the club, Avram Grant could be back at Stamford Bridge, only this time in a limited capacity as an advisor to their under fire manager Rafa Benitez. Grant, 57, just like Benitez, had a strained relationship with the fans of the club following his controversial appointment as manager of the Blues back in 2007 wherein he replaced fan favourite Jose Mourinho, widely regarded as the man who changed the fortunes of the West London outfit.

However, in the light of the recent poor form that has seen Chelsea endure 7 games without a win, their worst phase since 1995, the club owner Roman Abramovich is considering a recall of his close associate Avram Grant with a view to help his side out of the current turmoil.

The fans may not be in the mood to take in any of their owner’s haywire attempts at resurrection though and there is a threat of a severe backlash from them, should two people they do not have faith in end up running the show at Stamford Bridge.

Despite the possibility of dire consequences, it looks like Roman is willing to chance his arm one more time with a man he has long had a trusted relationship with.
