Grant insists he can bring success to Chelsea

Despite his low profile, Avram Grant insists he can bring success to Chelsea.

Grant makes the valid point that Fabio Capello was promoted from the coaching staff when he took charge of AC Milan. Ditto Vicente Del Bosque at Real Madrid.

"It was the same when Milan appointed Arrigo Sacchi," Grant told the Daily Mail. "No one could understand why Silvio Berlusconi wanted this guy from Parma. They said he would have to change now that he had better players. But Berlusconi said if he changed he didn't want him.

"I believe I can be as successful at Chelsea as they were at their clubs but I accept that the success I enjoyed in Israel counts for nothing here. I have not arrived, like Mourinho, as a Champions League winner.

"I have not had the success of Ferguson and Wenger. I have studied the best coaches' methods and the team is making progress. We are second in the Premier League. We are still in the Champions League."
