Grant Being Considered For Return By Roman Abramovich by obembet(f): 8:07am On Jan 13
Chelsea's owner believes Grant could provide valuable assistance to Frank Lampard.

The Blues' 3-1 defeat to Man City was their latest during a downturn in performances in the Premier League, Lampard and Grant reached the Champions League final together in 2008,

The Russian billionaire believes Grant's experience could provide invaluable support to manager Lampard and his staff.

Chelsea have won only one of their last six Premier League matches and have 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 knows what to do," Grant said in an Instagram post.

"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.

"What I can say to Frank and the others at the club is be patient, and more than this do whatever is necessary to do, that's for sure. Two things: never lose it even when things are going well, don't lose your fighting spirit at the highest level.

"And second, don't lose what you have here [points at head] - you need to think right and look for solutions. If you do that, then everything will be OK because the quality is there and there is a potential like there was [at Chelsea] in my time."

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.

Lampard needs an experienced Manager like Grant to be part of his backroom staff.
Those inexperienced backroom staff he brought from Championship won't help.

wow this man still dey?? Chelsea needs a change but I dnt think grant can work tinz out..
Grant is a good friend with Abramovic and also he was the first coach to take Chelsea to the UCL finals dt they lost to united via penalties...the same feat that so called "special one" couldn't do..
Chelsea thought they needed a young n vibrant coach, they went for lampard and he failed, and now they are going for old and experienced this time and It may work..
I think he deserves his chance and respect because chelsea knows better than online analyst like us..

This will be a disaster if it is true. Avram Grant was a journey man coach before he took over in 2008 and he went back to being a journey man coach after he was sacked by the same Chelsea in 2009.

His last serious job was as coach of Ghana in 2017.

It will be a step backwards if he is brought back.

valentineuwakwe:
I know it will come to this....young coaches like Lampard and Mikel Artetha are still learning the rudiments in coaching as well as the antics in premier league football....
one of them will be sack before February ending!

Being young doesn't mean u can't do well as a coach undecided although experience matters atimes

Look at Gerard (rangers), Guardiola (Barcelona)
Julian negelsman (RB Leipzig), Diego Martinez (Granada) just to mention few
They're in early fourties or late thirties undecided
Leizig manager is just 33 years old undecided
Tamel:

True words bro but everyone can't be the same.
What has negelsman won biko!?
Who dafuq is Diego Martinez
Lampard isn't doing great but he isn't doing too bad either .

C'mon no dey talk like that, he hasn't won anything doesn't mean he isn't good, he only took over Leipzig in 2019

We all know leizig is giving teams, especially Bayern Munich a run for their money
See where he reached last year UCL, knocked out ATM
2019, 2020 (third position in league) and currently sitting at the second position with 2 points behind bayern
Recently knocked out United out of UCL
The guy good, sentiment apart

U dey talk like say u no sabi how Granada dey give big teams tough time for laliga with average players
Granada is currently in UEL, all thanks to their coach...Diego Martinez undecided
