Grant offered Georgia return

26 Jun 2008 - 08:29:36

Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant has been offered a route back into football as the new coach of the Georgia national team.

The Israeli was sacked by the Blues last month after failing to win either the Premier League or Champions League during the brief time at the helm.

Grant replaced Jose Mourinho in the Stamford Bridge hot-seat in September but could only guide his side to runners-up finishes behind Manchester United both domestically and in Europe.

However, the former coach of the Israel national side could be back in work in the near future after being approached by Georgia.

The 53-year-old has also coached Maccabi Tel Aviv, Hapoel Haifa and Maccabi Haifa before being appointed national team coach in 2002.

"I have spoken with Grant and we have offered him the job. We will speak again," revealed federation president Nodar Akhalkatsi.

"He is a good coach and we have been watching him while he has worked with Israel and Chelsea."
