Grant: Abramovich always backs his Chelsea managers

Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant has no doubts Andre Villas-Boas will be given full backing by owner Roman Abramovich.

Grant maintains managers do get plenty of backing.

"Roman is a guy who says he wants results, and he gives you everything to achieve the results," said the Israeli, who went on to manage at financially-stricken Portsmouth and then West Ham, before being sacked when the Hammers were relegated.

"He wants it as quick as you can, and you can expect it because he has put a lot of money in.

"At the end of the day, football is a game of results, especially Chelsea."
