Just three days after losing to Manchester United in the Champions League Final via penalties, Avram Grant has been sacked as Chelsea Manager. Grant was manager at Chelsea for a mere 8 months and had taken the team to their first ever Final and also gave United a run for their money in the league. This sacking could come as a surprise to many considering his achievements so far. He has lost only 5 times this season lost in the champions League final, the league cup final to the spurs and finished a close second in the league.Better than Mourinho. However I always felt that he wouldn't last long and he was the wrong choice in the first place. For a club like Chelsea a high profile manager is required and somehow Grant didn't fit in to the star studded club. Grant's appointment was based more on a friendly basis or so I feel. Chelsea have refused to make any comments till the appointment of their next manager. Ousted Barcelona manager,Frank Rijkaard, threatened Man City manager, Sven Goran Eriksson and Serie A winner for three consecutive seasons with Inter Milan, Roberto Mancini are all linked with the post.
