Avram Grant described himself as the "normal" one as he vowed to coach Chelsea in his own way after taking over from ´the Special One´.

Grant was unveiled as first-team coach at Stamford Bridge on Friday evening, taking over from Jose Mourinho following the shock events at the club this week, but he made a less dramatic immediate impact than his predecessor.

While Mourinho famously called himself "special", Grant said: "I am a normal person. I have my own philosophy. I respect everything that was here in the past and I´m sure what I do in the future will be respected."
