Avram Grant has complained about the lack of transfer funds he had at West Ham United during the summer.
Grant insists he spent more money trying to save Portsmouth from the drop than he has been given at West Ham.
The Israeli said: "I thought I'd have more money to spend at West Ham but I knew what the financial situation was.
"At Portsmouth we spent more money than we have here. It's not a secret that we wanted to do more things but the owners saved the team from possible bankruptcy.
"It's a concern when you see what Stoke, Sunderland and Birmingham have spent because they are clubs which you'd hope to do well against."
