I can still do a job, says Grant

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - BY SI­MON GRIVER

Avram Grant is de­ter­mined to re­main in English foot­ball de­spite be­com­ing the first man­ager to achieve back-to-back Premier League rel­e­ga­tions.

Grant took Portsmouth and West Ham down in con­sec­u­tive sea­sons but he is look­ing for an­other op­por­tu­nity.

“I have of­fers but not ones I want,” Grant said. “My top pri­or­ity is to stay in Eng­land. I’ve had some won­der­ful years here, ex­cept last sea­son which was not good at all.

“I had a good sea­son at Portsmouth, even though we went down. But last sea­son hasn’t added to my chances. I didn’t suc­ceed. I wanted to do some­thing good and ma­jor.

“The cir­cum­stances were very dif­fi­cult, and un­til Jan­uary I did not have a very good squad. But I do take re­spon­si­bil­ity.”

Grant was linked with a re­turn to Is­rael but said: “I’ve had enough of Is­raeli foot­ball, and with­out wish­ing to in­sult any other coun­try, English foot­ball is my first choice.

“I’d be pre­pared to take on a Cham­pi­onship team with po­ten­tial.”

Mean­while, Tamir Co­hen, the for­mer Bolton mid­fielder, looks set to join Mac­cabi Haifa.
