Grant piles pressure on interim manager Rafa Benitez.
Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant has insisted managing the club is ‘very easy’ according to The Mirror.
The Israeli boss was sacked just eight months after replacing Jose Mourinho but has come out and said the London club should be challenging for the Premier League and Champions League at the very least.
‘I don’t think Rafa Benitez will be replaced any time soon. But let me tell you something, coaching at Chelsea is very easy’, said Grant.
‘It’s way easier than coaching West Ham, for instance, because you have a very big budget and top players to choose from. All you have to do is go after the win.
‘Things aren’t going well at Chelsea. They have made huge investments but the mood there is not good.
‘They can’t be happy when they are not challenging for the league.
‘They don’t like being in the Europa League and their players are not dreaming about being in that final.
‘Their motivation would have been much greater in the Champions League.’
Grant is thought to be on a shortlist of managers who could replace Benitez at the end of the season.
Chelsea fans are desperate to see former manager Jose Mourinho return but it is thought Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is reluctant to re-appoint the ‘Special One’ after they parted in acrimonious circumstances following the Portuguese gaffer’s reign at the club.
