Chelsea boss wants to add more flair to squad

Avram Grant has outlined his intention to add more flair to the Chelsea squad next season and insists he does not fear for his job. When the Israeli replaced Jose Mourinho as manager last September, it was widely expected Grant would introduce a more adventurous style to Chelsea's game. That has yet to be witnessed on a consistent basis, but the Blues boss is determined to make his team more appealing to the eye. "We already have a very, very good team at Chelsea," Grant told the Daily Mail. "One that has a chance to win the championship and the Champions League this season. "But we have to plan for the future as well and I want to add more flair to the team. "I know Roman Abramovich will give us his full support if the right player becomes available. But if it is not possible to bring in a Messi or a Kaka we will try to find the next one."


Though Grant's appointment as Mourinho's replacement has been continually questioned, he remains convinced he is the right man for the job. He added: "I took over in a very difficult situation and I think people at the club understand that. "I think they can see the team progressing and I'm not sure there is another manager who could have done a better job than me. "I'm building for the future and I have no reason to think I will not be in charge next season. "I don't need to speak to Roman about it. When I took the job he said: 'We are no longer friends because you are now my manager'. I will just continue to do my job."
