Former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric has backed the club's appointment of Avram Grant as new manager.
Mandaric, now in a similar role at Leicester, believes the 54-year-old is the right man for the job.
"I am delighted for Avram and the supporters as they deserve a team in the Premier League," Mandaric told Sky Sports News.
"He is the best solution. He is a very proud man, who has ability and experience.
"They (Portsmouth) have enough good players and with Avram organising them they have a very good chance of getting out of trouble. I hope that is the case."
