Former Chelsea manager Avram Grant has stated that he believes the 2007/2008 he was in charge at Stamford Bridge was the best in recent seasons. The Blues finished second in the Premier League and would have won the Champions League if John Terry had not missed his penalty kick in the final.
Grant said: ‘I’m not arrogant, but when I look back, I think that was the best season for Chelsea in recent years in terms of the way the side played. They played great football and showed great character. One of the strengths of this team was how we recovered from a poor start to the season. We played the best football in the league and almost became champions of England and champions of Europe. I am proud of that season and how we played’.
The former Blues boss also discussed his time with Roman Abramovich and said that the pressure he faced was a good thing, because everything he had was the best. Grant admitted he enjoyed working under pressure and was unfortunate to have the long-term programme with the Blues cut short.
