Chelsea's Anelka likens Grant to Del Bosque

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka has likened Avram Grant to his former Real Madrid coach Vicente del Bosque.

"Grant is good for the players because we don't feel the pressure. He is very calm and very shy. When he speaks to the players, you feel confident," he said.

"Of course I hope he stays. Everybody does. He knows what he is doing and that is why he doesn't speak a lot.

"When you see him from inside, you feel very confident. You know what you are doing. Of course it would be good for him to win but also for the players.

"Del Bosque was shy as well and didn't speak a lot. He wanted to play football, he knew what he was doing and we won with him. They had the same style. They know football, they know what they want."
