Grant cleared to coach in Europe
Avram Grant
Grant won his first game as Chelsea boss at Hull in the Carling Cup
Uefa has no plans to ban new Chelsea manager Avram Grant from coaching in the Champions League despite uncertainty over his qualifications.

Grant has yet to obtain the Uefa Pro Licence which is normally required to coach in European competition.

But a Uefa spokesman said: "We are awaiting the outcome of discussions between Chelsea, the Israeli Football Association and the Premier League.

"But we have no intention of banning or taking any other disciplinary measure."

606: DEBATE

Uefa would only be forced to consider Grant's case if the Premier League formally complained to the game's European governing body about his lack of qualifications.

Former Israel coach Grant was named as Chelsea's manager following Jose Mourinho's shock departure last week.
