Grant reveals talks with two Chelsea stars

November 14, 2007

Chelsea coach Avram Grant has had to reassure two of his players since he took over from Jose Mourinho - neither of them Didier Drogba.

The Ivory Coast striker appeared to be unsettled in the early days of Grant's tenure, but the Israeli boss reports he has no qualms with Drogba.

With Chelsea currently fourth in the Premier League, five points off the pace being set by Arsenal and Manchester United, Grant is growing in stature following former boss Mourinho's surprise departure in September.

Although he hints there have been growing pains with some members of the squad he inherited, he told The Sun: 'Didier behaves very well and gives 100% every game. I am happy with him.

'Sometimes players come to me and say they are unhappy. Two have done this - but it doesn't matter who.'
