Naona, Abramovic kachanganyikiwa baada ya Man U kunyakua ushindi...
AVRAM GRANT has been booted out of Chelsea.
The Blues sacked the Israeli today and will now step up their search for a new boss. Owner Roman Abramovich could move for former Barcelona manager Frank Rijkaard or current Russia boss Guus Hiddink.
Grant lasted less than a season at Stamford Bridge after failing to win any silverware.
A statement read: "Chelsea Football Club can confirm that Avram Grant has had his contract as manager terminated. This follows meetings over the last two days.
"Everybody at Chelsea would like to thank Avram for his contribution since taking over as manager last September.
"We will now be concentrating all our efforts on identifying a new manager for Chelsea and there will be no further comment until that appointment is made."
Grant took over from Jose Mourinho in September and took Chelsea to the finals of the Champions League and the Carling Cup.
He also pushed Manchester United to the final day of the Premier League title race.

Wanaanza kushikana Uchawi sasa, watabakia hivyo hivyo, Makosa waliyafanya walipomuondoa King Mourinho kwa maana Mourinho alikuwa mjanja anasaka kwanza makombe yote ya mbuzi kwanza halafu ndio anatoa macho na UEFA, hata akilikosa lakini anajua bado anaheshima amehifadhi. Sasa Babu Grant kaingia Fainali 3 naweza kusema maana Moja ni ya Ligi wakati wanachuana na Man Utd kugombea Points akaja kumwagwa na Bolton, Pili Carling Cup kapigwa na Tottenham, ya mwisho ndio MSUMARIIII UMEWACHOMA, UEFA vidume COCONUT vimechukua Mashetani Wekundu.
Pole sana Grant, ila sijali timu zipo nyingi sana, Luton, Swindon etc.
Dont mess with a Big 'billionaire' Boy toy!
Ranieri, Mourinho, sasa Grant... Roman Abramovich yeye ndoto yake Chelsea icheze kama Arsenal, na ishinde kama Man U!... kwakuwa Rijkaard ameweza hayo katika miaka ile ya mafanikio na Barcelona, huenda (ingawa kuna mabichwa magumu ya kina Terry, Lamps na Joe Cole) atafanikiwa yote hayo mawili na Chelsea!
Huyu Mrusi kufukuzafukuza makocha kila kukicha kutaiharibu timu. Timu inatakiwa ikae kwa muda mrefu na kocha mmoja ili iwe na style moja ya uchezaji pamoja na kujenga stability. Hili la kubadilibadili makocha linaweza kuwachanganya wachezaji na hatimaye baadhi kuamua kuondoka kwenda kwenye timu ambazo zina stability.
He he mtafukuza kila mtu hadi attendants wa uwanjani...Ila Avram Grant was too arrogant ni sawa tu naye wamemtimua.
Acha "uhafidhina" yakhe, huyu Fegi wenu ana vipapai kutoka Haiti ndio maana bado anapeta!
Ebo!!!! Lampard naye anaweza kutimkia Inter Milan...pale inabidi mumlete Rijkaard, kwanza atauza wachezaji wote wa bei rahisi alafu wale wote wanaojidai watemi kama Drogba watakuwa wanakula mkong'oto kiaina lol.
ebu angalia hii kitu nilitengeneza wiki iliyopita..najua itakupa machungu.
Na Nyingine hii
Mourinho: Grant was a loser
JOSE MOURINHO has hammered the final nail in Avram Grant's coffin by branding the sacked Chelsea boss a "loser".
The Special One was axed by the Blues in September, heralding the start of Grant's reign.
But after a trophyless season, in which the Stamford Bridge club were second in the Champions League, Carling Cup and Premier League, the Israeli was axed by Roman Abramovich.
Mourinho, who is expected to return to management this summer, believes the Blues' season under Grant can only be classed as a failure.
The Portuguese boss said: "In my philosophy it was a very bad one because in football "almost" means defeat.
"Chelsea almost won the Carling Cup, almost won the Champions League, and almost won the Premier League.
"Almost is nothing.
"After two titles per season for the last three years there were zero titles this season.
"In my philosophy that means a really bad season.
"Maybe in the philosophy of a loser this was a great season, which I respect."

Sacked Grant dubbed a 'loser' by Mourinho
Mourinho's Chelsea verdict: Grant's a 'loser'

Avram Grant has been sacked by Chelsea, on the day José Mourinho broke his long silence on his successor at Stamford Bridge by criticising the Israeli's failure to win a single trophy. The Portuguese went on to suggest that the football philosophy of his successor is that of 'a loser'.
Mourinho's exclusive interview with The Observer comes as it is revealed that Roman Abramovich made the Portuguese manager the extraordinary gift of a limited edition Ferrari worth more than £2million, in the immediate aftermath of Grant's debilitating Carling Cup final loss to Tottenham.
February's defeat was one of three final-day failures, culminating in Wednesday's Champions League Final loss to Manchester United. The Israeli coach had his contract terminated last night.
Asked if Chelsea's campaign had been the good one Grant depicted it as, Mourinho said: 'That depends on your philosophy of leadership. In my philosophy it was a very bad one because in football "almost" means defeat and Chelsea almost won the Carling Cup, almost won the Champions League, and almost won the Premier League. Almost is nothing.
'After two titles per season for the last three years there were zero titles this season, which in my philosophy means a really bad season. Maybe in the philosophy of a loser this was a great season, which I respect.'
Mourinho was in regular contact with Abramovich and several of his former players ahead of the Champions League final and was quick to commiserate with them after their defeat on penalties in Moscow. He told the Russian billionaire that Chelsea would not continue to suffer the misfortune that also cost them two previous European Cup semi-finals to Liverpool.
'The best team lost the Champions League final, like last season the best team lost the Champions League semi-final,' Mourinho said. 'That is football. I have always said that details make the difference at this level - and luck is a really big detail.
'I am very sad about what happened. In the last two years this team lost a Champions League final and a Champions League semi-final on penalties. The supporters deserve more, Roman and the board deserve more, top people like [Frank] Lampard, [Michael] Essien, [Claude] Makelele, Ashley [Cole], Didier [Drogba], [Ricardo] Carvalho, [and coaches] Steve Clarke, Mick McGiven and some others deserve happiness. I still think of them as my boys.
'Yes, I was sad. Yes, I felt deeply that it was not fair. But I believe that after an empty season new success will come to Chelsea. And I will always be a Chelsea supporter.'
The chances of Mourinho returning as Chelsea manager have increased significantly in recent weeks. Mourinho was astounded when Chelsea director
Eugene Tenenbaum called in February to inform him that Abramovich had purchased a rare Ferrari for the man he had removed from Stamford Bridge five months previously.
Customised specially for Mourinho, the 612 Scaglietti was one of just 60 produced to commemorate Ferrari's 60th anniversary. While still at Chelsea, Mourinho had told Abramovich that if he could have his choice of cars, the four-seat Scaglietti would be it. The list price is around £250,000, but such is its rarity the secondary-market value is as much as eight times that amount.
Abramovich's gift was made at a time at which he had begun to consider replacing Grant as manager, with Mourinho's name raised as a potential appointment. While such a move appears more feasible now that Grant has gone, sources close to the Portuguese coach say that he is too close to taking a position in Italy for it to happen this close season, although they do not rule it out in the future.
Mourinho is likely to take over from Roberto Mancini at Internazionale and may sign a contract with the Serie A club this week. He has already drawn up plans for next season and is likely to take striker Didier Drogba with him to Italy.
Grant has agreed a £5.2m pay-off from Chelsea. Although bookies were offering odds on as many as 10 different managers to be the Israeli's successor, the favourites are former Barçelona coach Frank Rijkaard, Guus Hiddink and Sven-Goran Eriksson.
Chelsea have been involved in secret conversations with Hiddink, whose position as Russia's national coach is not as secure as has been presented. The Dutchman has a provisional contract to coach Russia until the 2010 World Cup, but that will not be ratified until after Euro 2008 and senior figures in the Russian Football Union are unimpressed by the team's qualification campaign. Vitaly Mutko, newly appointed sports minister and head of the Russian Football Union, said: 'We will evaluate his work after the European Championship.' Although his salary is funded by the Chelsea owner, Hiddink has previously resisted invitations to manage the club for personal reasons.
Eriksson, who was approached about the Stamford Bridge post before Mourinho replaced Claudio Ranieri in 2004, is due to meet Chelsea officials next week after he is formally dismissed by Manchester City. The Swede had been linked with a return to his former club Benfica, but the Lisbon side have appointed Quique Sánchez Flores. The Spaniard was sacked by Valencia last October.
Hi inaanza kubadili ladha ya mpira....utamu unaondolewa inaanza kuboa!
Watu wanafanya mpira kama kufungua duka! Unapofungua duka kwa fedha nyingi unategemea immediate outcomes!
Nimeudhika sana alipoondelewa Ranieri, then Jose , sasa Grant..... labda itakua Real Madrid ya England!
Nasikitika kuungana na Wenger kwamba watu wenye fedha wanaharibu mpira......hesima kwa hisia za mashabiki haipo tena!
Man City? Inaudhi!
...huyu Mourinho naye amekuwa le Vouyer!!! (?)
'mume' (Chelsea) keshamtaliki lakini heshi kujipitisha, kunusa nusa na mbaya zaidi kuropokwa kila kinachoendelea kwa ex-husband wake, If he's the 'special One' si ajikalie kimya tu ili tumpime uwezo wake huko Milan?!
Ha ha nilikwambia over the weekend mtafukuza kila mtu...words on the net ni kuwa Henk Ten Cate naye ametimuliwa....mnatafuta mchawi sio?
Chelsea are reported to have sacked Henk ten Cate from his position as assistant first team coach, casting doubt on the possibility of Frank Rijkaard becoming the next Chelsea manager.
Following the dismissal of Avram Grant as manager last weekend speculation has been rife surrounding the club's future leadership.
Dutchman Ten Cate previously worked with Rijkaard at Barcelona and because of this link it was believed that Chelsea executives could be leaning towards handing control of Stamford Bridge to Rijkaard.
Icadon, Mchawi ni huyo Mrusi na $$$$ zisizo kikomo, ameiharibu hiyo league na sasa imeanza kuwa isiyoyenye faida Europe!
Alitakiwa akae pembeni aachie wataalamu wa soka wafanye kazi zao...dude thought kwa kumchukua Mourinho na Kenyon watapata UCL in one season?
