UEFA are set to allow Avram Grant to coach his Chelsea players from the touchline in next week´s Champions League game against Valencia even without a Pro Licence.

Under UEFA´s club licensing system, coaches at clubs in the Champions League have to have the highest qualification available.

It is understood however that UEFA will permit the Israeli to carry out his duties unrestrained during the 12-week period of grace allowed by the Premier League while the issue over his licence is sorted out.
