Chelsea manager Avram Grant’s future at the London club is under some considerable doubt after the Blues were knocked out by minnows Barnsley from the last 8 of the FA Cup on Saturday. But Chelsea custodian Petr Cech says that the players very much support Grant.
The Czech internatinal goalkeeper says:
I cannot comment on what appers in the papers,” Cech told Sport in reference to suggestions players will leave. “I know nothing about it.
I think the relationships here are like in every club in the world in terms of the coach and the players.
We are a big club and have a coach who was unknown in England in the past and that is why everyone tries to find new things.
If the relationship was not working, we would not be winning. In my opinion, this is clear evidence of that being just speculation.
But somehow Cech’s words of confidence do not cut much ice. Chelsea are now running for just two trophies and the Premiership title doesn’t appear feasible. In all likelihood, Roman Avramovich may well decide to chuck out Grant in the summer and replace him with someone with better credentials.
