Tal Ben Haim has turned on Chelsea boss Avram Grant.

When asked if it was true he signed at Stamford Bridge knowing he would be a sub, Ben Haim lashed out.

He told The Sun: "Jose Mourinho is the reason I came to Chelsea and if I knew Avram Grant was going to be the coach then I would have signed for another club.

"It was Jose who brought me here and no one except he and I know the conversation we had when he tried to sign me the first time a year ago last January.

"The fact is while Jose was the coach I played most of the games and people who know me know that I would not have come here to be a reserve.

"I knew that nothing good would come with Grant as Chelsea coach."
