Defending champions Serbia Partizan Belgrade said they have invited former Chelsea coach Avram Grant to lead the team under a contract of record value.

Serbian media said that in order to invite Avram Grant, Partizan Belgrade had to make offers “unprecedented in the history” of this team. Accordingly, the Israeli coach will gently pocket $ 1.1 million per year, not to mention he will also receive another half a million USD in bonus if Partizan wins tickets to the Champions League next season.

This is an offer that cannot be “better” for Avram Grant when in Serbia at the moment, Partizan is the most appreciated team and they are not in crisis as one would think of a new team to replace the general. . In fact, the former coach Aleksandar Stanojevic was fired just because he dared to “turn on” the leadership team because of disagreements on personnel issues. In terms of sports, Partizan is still leading the Serbian championship with a 10-point gap over the second team Red Star Belgrade.

As for Gram, Partizan was the first team he accepted to lead after being sacked by West Ham in May for not being able to help this team succeed in relegation. Before that, his outstanding achievement was bringing Portsmouth, which was also later relegated, to the FA Cup Final. Before that, Grant was the one who led Chelsea to the only Champions League Final in the team’s history up to this point. That match, Chelsea lost to MU on the 11m mark with John Terry’s historic slip.
