Abramovich considers bringing ex-manager Avram Grant back to Chelsea
Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich is considering a move to bring former manager Avram Grant back to Stamford Bridge to work with current Blues boss Frank Lampard.
The Russian billionaire believes Grant’s experience could provide invaluable support to manager Lampard and his staff.
Chelsea has won only one of their last six Premier League matches and has dropped to ninth in the table.
Grant believes his strengths lie as a team manager rather than behind the scenes, so potentially the 65-year-old’s return to Stamford Bridge could be on a short-term basis.
“About the current situation, I can say only this. You need to be strong when things are not going well, when things are going well everyone is a genius and know what to do.
“But in the situation like this when things aren’t going well you need to be strong, look for solutions and show a lot about your character,” Grant said in an Instagram post.
In 2018, the former Portsmouth and West Ham boss had a spell as manager of Indian Super League team NorthEast United.
Prior to that, Grant managed Ghana, leading them to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations in 2015, losing to Ivory Coast on penalties.
Grant guided Chelsea to the Champions League final in 2008 and Lampard scored 20 goals during 40 appearances in all competitions for the Blues during that season.
