Jacob: Portsmouth happy with Grant in charge

Portsmouth chief Mark Jacob says the board stands by manager Avram Grant.

Jacob has backed Grant, who was the subject of more negative headlines last week after allegedly having visited a brothel.

Jacob said: "It's a private matter between Avram and his family. The board are fully supportive of the team and the coach.

"Avram Grant is gradually turning things around. There is a fighting spirit in the club."
