Ex-Chelsea Manager Accused Of Sexual Harassment

Ex-Chelsea Manager Accused Of Sexual Harassment

A string of high profile women have accused former Chelsea manager Avram Grant of exposing himself, forcibly kissing them and demanding intercourse, according to an Israeli TV investigation.

One woman, who is 43 years younger than Grant, told how she “froze” in terror when he took her hand and placed it on his groin area.

After rebuffing his demands for sex she stayed the night in his flat only to wake the next morning to find him stood before her naked.

Another woman who was a successful model said she met him for career advice only for him to take all his clothes off, lie on a bed and say: “Let’s have sex.”

Grant shot to fame in 2007 when he was made the manager of Chelsea by owner Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich – leading them to the Champions League final.

The revelations on Israel’s Channel 12’s investigative show Exposure come 12 years after The Sun caught Grant visiting a brothelwhile he was Portsmouth manager.

At the time Grant, who wore a Portsmouth tracksuit for his visit, denied doing anything wrong and said: “I got the massage from a rather old woman. I wish they would publish some pictures of her because she was so old it is obvious she is not a hooker.”

He has now apologised after TV journalist Haim Etgar’s investigation exposed what has been dubbed the “Grant Method” of approaching women.

Grant said: “I apologise from the depth of my heart.”

He had already managed Israel’s top two teams, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Maccabi Haifa, and the national team, when he shot to worldwide fame after his friend Roman Abramovich appointed him as Chelsea boss in 2007.

Some of the women alleged Grant – who went on to manage Portsmouth and West Ham after leaving Stamford Bridge – sexually harassed them in London.

They are all high profile women journalists or models in Israel but their identifies were concealed for last night’s broadcast.
