Grant rebuilding Chelsea backroom team

Avram Grant is keen to bring in his own backroom staff at Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho's backroom staff left the club along with the Portuguese coach when he left by mutual consent last Wednesday.

The speed of events has left Grant working alongside Mourinho's assistant Steve Clarke but the 52-year-old Israeli confirmed plans were in place to install his own team, saying: "Everything happened so quickly but we are looking for staff that will be good for Chelsea. We are still looking but I think in two or three weeks, you will see the arrival of the new staff."

He added: "The previous staff did a very good job here but they decided to go with Jose. I understand them. I want to do it as quickly as possible but we want quality and will take our time.

"We are looking in England and abroad. We need a fitness and a goalkeeping coach. We are using people from the academy at the moment and they are doing a very good job."
