Israeli coach Lahman in Chelsea talks

Another Israeli could be joining Avram Grant's backroom staff at Chelsea.

The Independent says Grant has held discussions with Israeli coach Eyal Lahman, as he attempts to re-mould his backroom staff following the departure of Jose Mourinho and his four-strong Portuguese coaching team.

Lahman, formerly at the Arab-Israeli team Beni Sakhnin, who played Newcastle United in the Uefa Cup three years ago, is wanted to take control of the defensive coaching.
