Chelsea manoeuvre into position to ditch Grant

May 23, 2008

No this is not turning into a football blog. It’s just topical right now.

Chelsea Chief Executive Peter Kenyon has been making remarks to the press which look designed to pave the way for Avram Grant’s exit as Chelsea manager, probably a kick back upstairs to Director of Football.

OK, so he exceeded all reasonable expectations, including taking Chelsea further than ever before in the Champions League (losing out only to a John Terry slip in the mud for which Grant bears ultimate responsibility).

But he doesn’t smile much, no-one had ever heard of him before he was appointed and he’s unfashionably Israeli.

And oh look, he didn’t actually win anything! (Even though he got much much closer than Wenger or Benitez.)

Best get rid then.
