Avram Grant has returned to Portsmouth as director of football. The former Chelsea manager had a spell with the club alongside Harry Redknapp before moving on to Stamford Bridge in 2007. The south coast club announced on Wednesday that the 54-year-old Israeli would return to Fratton Park and start work on Monday to help manager Paul Hart steer the club away from relegation trouble. Portsmouth, which was taken over by Saudi Arabian property magnate Ali Al-Faraj on Monday, is last in the Premier League after losing its first seven Premier League games. The team beat Wolves 1-0 Saturday.
