Middlesbrough midfielder Gary O'Neil is backing Avram Grant to be successful at Chelsea.

"I got on really well with him at Pompey and it was good to see him. It was a shame he got the last laugh but I'm pleased to see him doing well," said the Israeli.

"He's definitely got the talent and skills to be a top manager in his own right. I didn't really see a lot of him at Portsmouth because he spent a lot of time behind the scenes but I'm sure he'll do a great job at Chelsea."
