Grant thanks Portsmouth fans for passionate welcome

Portsmouth boss Avram Grant was given a rapturous welcome by the Pompey fans at the start of last night's defeat to Fulham and they chanted the Israeli's name throughout the game.

He has voiced his frustration at the precarious financial situation at Fratton Park but re-affirmed his commitment to carry on.

He said: "I am very proud because it is good that we showed even with the problems off the pitch, that we kept the spirit of the game and gave 100%.

"As long as we have a chance, we will fight.

"With the situation of the club, I am trying to do my best for the team.

"I love this club and when all of the city is supporting the team, I feel committed.

"I am trying to do my best in these circumstances."
