Portsmouth boss Avram Grant has no doubts about the commitment of Roman Abramovich to Chelsea.

Portsmouth boss Avram Grant has no doubts about the commitment of Roman Abramovich to Chelsea.

While Pompey's problems began when former owner Alexandre Gaydamak withdrew his financial backing in late 2008, Grant is certain Chelsea are in safe hands with Abramovich.

He said: "I think they have the best owner..

"You have to remember one thing about him. Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool were great before and will stay great clubs. But Abramovic put Chelsea in the position they are now..

"Of course, I think any club would want an owner like this. He gives a lot of money and a lot of emotion to them..

"If you think that he is perfect, he is not perfect. But name me one person in the world who is perfect..

"This owner took a team outside of the big clubs and made them one of the most respectable teams in the world."
