Chelsea boss Grant: Everybody hates me, I don't care

Chelsea boss Avram Grant has dismissed criticism of the way he handled Wednesday night's defeat at Fenerbahce.

Grant said: "People can say whatever they want, it is fine by me.

"I don't care. I need to do my job and don't listen to all these opinions. If I had, we would have lost more games."

Fener's former Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman reckons old boss Jose Mourinho would not have lost a 1-0 lead but Grant said: "People speak about Jose and Claudio Ranieri before him. I don't care about all that. This club has gone a different way. They have put me in charge.

"I prefer what happened on Wednesday. We were dominating.

"We were the better team and it was not the time to close it at 1-0. It was time to go for 2-0."
