Avram Grant Set To Replace Sven

Avram Grant Set To Replace Sven

Avram Grant, the former Chelsea manager, is leading the race to be the next manager of Manchester City, according to reports.

Speculation surrounding the future of City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson continues after club owner Thaksin Shinawatra refused to answer whether Sven would remain at the club.

Former prime minister of Thailand told the AFP news service...

'It's normal at the end of the season that every Premier League football club will have to do something with the team, by strengthening the team.'

'Everything is part of strengthening the team, including coach, players and even improving the pitch ourselves.'


Shinawatra is thought to be on the verge of making Avram Grant an offer he cannot refuse following his disastrous (tongue in cheek) eight months in charge at Stamford Bridge.

Vital Manchester City says...

'He (Toxin) seriously thinks that 'Mr Personality' (Grant), who has run Manchester United so close in the Premier and Champions League would be the perfect replacement for Eriksson.'

'What planet is he on?'

Believe me this man is not a good coach, But it was in the forefront, All good results for Chelsea this season was from the assistant coach ( henk ten kat ), I say realy there is no understanding management of football in Manchester City, if they contract with Grant !! & you will see next season he can not continue to lead the team more than two months, At that time you will remember my Words.

Please, don't give Ten Cate credit - he ruined Ajax and he is apparently responsible for a lot of the dressing room tension at Chelsea.

Avram Grant led chelsea to champ's glory by beating Liverpool(something that Jose Mourinho failed to do twice)!! / Chelsea was better than Manchester in the last 2 games between the sides(we all know that Avram's side was much better in the Champ's final than Ferguson's side). / Avram grant's side beat Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester, one after one to match the points of manchester in the league(When he got the team after Mourinho's departure, Chelsea was in sixth place in the table and struggle in the Champ's league against rosenburg at home). So if Man. City will get to sign him, it'll be a great step by the club and will take it to higher position than this year! (lets not forget that Avram's side beat the City like no one else did, 6-0 against his good friend sven, so if you can't beat him, recruit him).

...Liverpool and the United, one by one to reach equality in points with the best ever Man. Utd team. We can't say this about many managers in the league itself(not to say, in the world as general).so,to bring Avram to be the City's manager will be great boost for the club.
