Grant could step in as new Portsmouth manager

Avram Grant could step in at Portsmouth after the dismissal of Paul Hart yesterday.

Portsmouth could have their next manager in place for Saturday's home clash with Manchester United after Paul Hart was dismissed by the south coast club.

The club already have an ideal replacement for Hart at the club, after bringing in former Chelsea manager Avram Grant as director of football last month.

Pompey intend to make a swift appointment, however, there was no confirmation tonight that Grant will inherit the job.

He has not given any public indication he wants to return to management with Pompey, and at the time of his appointment club chief executive Peter Storrie stressed the 54-year-old was coming in only to oversee football matters, rather than have a hands-on role with the first team.
