Chelsea have distanced themselves from reports suggesting coach Avram Grant is at the centre of a race-hate campaign.

Grant has been the target for abuse this season with harmless white powder being sent to the club´s training ground, and Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck also accused some of the club´s fans of sending racist abuse after Grant replaced Jose Mourinho as manager at Stamford Bridge last September.

On Thursday Grant´s agent and friend, Pini Zahavi, claimed the Chelsea boss was the victim of an anti-Semitism campaign - but a statement on the club´s official website said: "We would like to officially distance ourselves from comments in the media regarding the reasons behind any criticism Avram Grant may or may not have received since he became our manager."
