Avram Grant has ruled out returning to Chelsea to either replace or work alongside beleaguered interim manager Rafael Benitez.
The Spaniard has been under fire since his controversial appointment at Stamford Bridge last month, with his unpopularity amongst fans in large part down to comments he made about the west Londoners and their fans whilst Liverpool boss.
There are already reports that owner Roman Abramovich is looking to replace Benitez but Grant shot down rumours linking him with a return to the club he guided to the Champions League final in 2008 and added the former Valencia boss needs to be fully supported by the Blues. "Nobody from Chelsea has offered me this job," the Israeli told BBC Radio 5 Live.
