When Harry met Avram
Grant was brought in as Pompey's technical director by co-owner Alexandre Gaydamak, much to the displeasure of Harry Redknapp.
I'm told that during the time that they worked together, Harry used to ask exactly what Grant did as technical director. Others at the club said they were not sure exactly, but saw him walking around using his mobile phone a lot.
Unlike the man he replaces at Chelsea, he wasn't known as a great communicator although he did help put together a motivational video at Pompey. He remained in constant touch with Abramovich during his time on the south coast and, when he finally came to leave for Chelsea, Harry offered to give him a lift up the A3!
