Israeli-Russian businessman and owner of the famous Chelsea Football Club, Roman Abramovich, is thinking of bringing back Avram Grant on the team to assist Chelsea’s manager, Frank Lampard.
This move comes as no surprise as the English Club has lost five out of their recent six games, losing to Manchester City, Arsenal, Wolves, Everton and a draw with Aston Villa. The only recorded victory in the year was on Sunday, which was a 4-0 victory against Morecambe.
This performance has dropped the club to ninth place on the Premier League table.
Avram’s return to Chelsea will most likely be on a short-term basis as the 65-year old considers himself more useful as a manager than behind the scene.
Following their loss to Man City on the 3rd of January, Avram made a video on Instagram in which he voiced out his opinion saying, "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.
But in a situation like this when things aren't going well you need to be strong, look for solutions, and show a lot about your character."
He further said, “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 lost 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 okay because the quality is there and there is a potential like there was [at Chelsea] in my time.”
In summary, he asked the club owner to give Lampard more time.
Avram is no doubt an efficient manager who has a record of getting the job done. In 2015, he led Ghana to the Africa Cup of Nations Finals, and in 2008, he led Chelsea to the finals of the Champions League, a season in which Frank Lampard scored 20 goals.
Frank acknowledges the difference that Abrahamovich makes by being present as a Club owner. Would Grant come back to Stamford Bridge? Most likely.
