Grant given Euro green light

27 Sep 2007 - 15:52:21

UEFA has confirmed it has no plans to ban Chelsea manager Avram Grant from coaching in the Champions League.

The Israeli's ability to manage the Blues in Europe had been brought into question following uncertainty over his qualifications.

Grant has yet to obtain the UEFA Pro Licence necessary to coach in European competition, but the governing body has no current plans to investigate the matter.

"We are awaiting the outcome of discussions between Chelsea, the Israeli Football Association and the Premier League," said a UEFA spokesperson

"But we have no intention of banning or taking any other disciplinary measure."

The former Israel coach was handed the Chelsea reins last week following Jose Mourinho's shock departure.

However, UEFA could decide to intervene should the Premier League complain to Europe's governing body about his lack of qualifications.

The Premier League has yet to decide whether to give Grant the go ahead to coach the Blues beyond the 12-week period of grace usually afforded to managers without the necessary coaching badges.
