Storrie: Grant not a threat to Hart

Published Add your comment

Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie insists returning director of football Avram Grant is not waiting in the wings to take under-pressure manager Paul Hart's job.

The former Chelsea boss has signed a two-year deal with the club following Saudi businessman Ali Al-Faraj's takeover at Fratton Park.

Storrie said: "People can construe it how they like - the fact is he (Grant) has been brought in as a director of football and that has been made abundantly clear."

He added: "He will work with Paul and do exactly the same as what he did with Harry. He will be involved in the coaching.

"Paul selects the team but he is missing an experienced man alongside him at the moment."

Following Brian Kidd's departure as assistant manager over the summer, Portsmouth have been without a deputy for Hart.

Storrie confirmed the club will no longer be searching for a number two following Grant's arrival.
