Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant, who was a close friend of Roman Abramovich, took over from Jose Mourinho in 2007, as he was in charge of the club on interim basis.
Grant lasted just eight months before he was eventually replaced by Luiz Felipe Scolari.
Many Chelsea fans did not take well to Grant’s appointment. They protested Mourinho’s departure, holding banners at games, which read “Mourinho – The Special One”, and chanting Mourinho’s name.
Grant had a fairly successful season as he managed to lead Chelsea to the League Cup final and Champions League final.
Despite his short spell at Stamford Bridge, Grant believes his period in charge will be remembered fondly as he changed Chelsea’s pattern of play.
He told The Sun: “Before I joined, everybody spoke about Chelsea’s ugly football. After one month, nobody mentioned it.
“If you look back, it was maybe their best football.”
