Portsmouth boss Grant attempting to stay positive

Portsmouth boss Avram Grant is trying to stay positive over the future of the club.

When he took over as manager from Paul Hart in November, Grant was not expecting his every wish to be provided.

But he says a string of broken promises have severely hampered his efforts to keep a sinking club in the Premier League.

He said: "I'm not happy with the situation because when you promise something, you need to keep your promise.

"I know it's not easy in football and I know not 100 per cent of the things I want can be done. But it's not possible that 100 per cent of the things will not be done.

"I don't know who is at fault - I am not involved with the financial situation.

"But I'm trying not to think about myself at the moment and I'll give everything to the team, which is important for the future of the club.

"I know not many people believed I would stay two months ago, but I stayed even though the situation was very bad."
