Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has said he has no problems with the appointment of Israeli Avraham Grant as the team's director of football. It had been reported that Mourinho had not welcomed the decision by the Chelsea board to create the position for Grant, a former Israel national team coach who who moved to Stamford Bridge from Portsmouth. But over the weekend Mourinho spoke about the situation, insisting he felt Grant would make his life easier. "We have talked about how things are going to go with the structure and I am happy," Mourinho said. "I will do the same thing, my work is exactly the same and will not change in any way. "I have the same responsibilities, the same power and the same resources. My work will not change. Avram makes my life easier, he is a good guy. He wants to help people, he does not want to create problems for people. "His job in general terms is to help people in different areas in the club. I am happy to have him in our structure. And, if I say I am happy, then I am happy. If I wasn't, then you would see me around the corner snarling."
