Avram Grant has rapped Rafa Benitez over his struggles at Chelsea.

Grant is close to Blues owner Roman Abramovich and the former manager insists working for the club is "easy".

"I don’t think Rafa Benitez will be replaced any time soon," Grant told The Sun. "But, let me tell you something, coaching at Chelsea is very easy.

"It’s way easier than coaching West Ham, for instance, because you have a very big budget and top players to choose from. All you have to do is go after the win.

"Things aren’t going well at Chelsea. They have made huge investments but the mood there is not good.

"They can’t be happy when they are not challenging for the league.

"They don’t like being in the Europa League and their players are not dreaming about being in that final. Their motivation would have been much greater in the Champions League."
