Avram Grant, an Israeli, who led Chelsea to the Champions League Final, in Moscow, against Manchester United, after taking over as caretaker boss at Stamford Bridge when Scolari was axed, is set for a role in Bulgarian football.

Grant, who was in charge of the Ghanaian national side, has been appointed as the boss of Levski Sofia, marking a return to European football.

It`s fair to say that Grant was never the most popular of bosses at Chelsea, but it`s fair to say he did his best for the club in difficult circumstances.

One memory that springs to mind relates to when Chelsea beat Manchester United, in a Premier League game, with the Israeli dropping to his knees in front of the dug-out, in relief.

But, on the other side of the spectrum, who`ll ever forget the League Cup Final we lost to Tottenham Hotspur where Grant, ahead of the start of extra-time, looked a peripheral figure as John Terry appeared to be the one urging his team-mates for one last effort and discussing tactics.

However, if we`d beaten Manchester United on that rain-sodden night in Moscow, would things have turned out differently?

Would Grant have been given the job on a permanent basis?

Your thoughts on the above subject matter would be most appreciated in our comments facility beneath this article.
