Ben Haim was Mourinho´s man

Published Add your comment

Defender Tal Ben Haim has claimed he would never have joined Chelsea had he known Jose Mourinho would be replaced as manager by Avram Grant so soon after his arrival.

Ben Haim moved to Stamford Bridge last June, only three months before Mourinho´s departure, and the centre-half has played just six matches since the turn of the year under Grant.

"Jose Mourinho is the reason I came to Chelsea and if I knew Avram Grant was going to be the coach then I would have signed for another club," Ben Haim told The Sun.
