Portsmouth manager Avram Grant has revealed that he has had several job offers since he returned to Fratton Park five months ago.
However, the ex-Chelsea boss, who has guided Pompey to an FA Cup Final against his former club later this month, is adamant that he could not walk out on the south coast side.
Grant has had to deal with administration and relegation this season but insists he never thought about walking away despite all the problems.
He said:"I stayed here because my heart told me to stay, but I don't want to have another season like this. There are other opportunities but I didn't jump as soon as I could.
"It has been very tough and I like to work in football and deal with football problems. Sometimes financial problems are part of the game. But when it's like this, it's not good for me and it's not good for the club.
"I'm waiting to see what will happen, but at the moment, it looks like it is going the right way – let's wait and see.
"For me as a manager, I need to come to the team before the season and say 'what's the budget for this season, can we spend this, can we spend that?'. If the budget is £100 or £100million, it is the same. I can still build a good team if I know what's happening.
"The most dangerous thing is when you don't know what will happen and you don't know how much money you can spend or not spend."
