Grant hits back at media: Chelsea atmosphere fantastic

Chelsea boss Avram Grant has hit back at the negative press he's been receiving in recent weeks.

Speaking with Chelsea TV, Grant declared: "The mood is fantastic, the atmosphere is fantastic, the players behave as they need to behave. Everything is good.

"I learn one thing in Chelsea is that some people from outside have an agenda to hurt us and to create a story that never happened. If we were not like this we would not be in second place, we would not be in the semi-final of the Champions League, we would not be unbeaten more than any team in the Premier League.

"The players are not even angry. They are almost laughing because you need to be of a creative mind to create stories like this."

And he had a special message about Chelsea supporters and all the reports on unrest there.

"They speak about the supporters that don't support us. Most of the supporters support us. We play for them, we play for the last supporter who is in the last row. I believe in that, we are doing it for them, they are doing it for us. They need to respect us, we need to respect them, and together we will do it."
