New Chelsea director of football Avram Grant has admitted his new role is a "dream come true" and denied talk of a rift with manager Jose Mourinho.

The former Israel national coach joined the Blues after a successful stint in the same position with Portsmouth alongside Harry Redknapp last season and is keen to play down suggestions Mourinho was unhappy with his arrival at Stamford Bridge.

"Mourinho gave his blessing for my appointment," Grant told The Guardian. "I am happy. This is a dream come true for me. I have a lot of work to do and I will do everything to help the many causes that Chelsea have."
