Grant wants Pompey clarity

Manager Avram Grant says he will only remain in charge at Portsmouth next season if the club are able to find some stability off the pitch.

Grant arrived on the south coast in late November and has had to content with a whole host of problems, including Pompey sliding into administration and being docked nine points – a move which ensured their relegation.

However, the former Chelsea boss has stuck to his task and has guided his current club to an FA Cup final clash with the Blues next weekend.

Grant warned after a 1-0 loss at Everton that he may opt to move on, telling Sky Sports News:"If I can work like a manager of football and only a manager of football and not like this year, when I needed to be a manager of football and many, many other things.

"I don't know if you know, I was a financial man, I was a lawyer, I was many other things.

"This I will not do one season more. I don't think it is a good idea, not for me, not for the club.

"But I want to think positively, I want to think everything will be okay. But people don't know what it is to work under the pressures we have had this year.

"Even though I know everybody has sympathy for us, they don't know what it is to come day by day and not know what is the problem.

"When you come in every day and you don't know anything, I don't want it to be like this."
