jose mourinho restless

Jose Mourinho is growing increasingly restless in his search for a return to management and, after possible openings at Real Madrid and Barcelona failed to materialise, is monitoring the position of Rafa Benitez at Liverpool. If the Spaniard pays the price for failing to keep the Reds in serious contention for the Premier League title, then the former Chelsea boss would be interested in talking to the club's American owners.
There has been no approach to Mourinho by the Americans, but Hicks and Gillett are understood to be actively considering replacement managers and are well aware of the abilities of the Portuguese, who discussed becoming Liverpool manager before joining Chelsea in 2004. Asked last night to comment on the pair's interest in employing Mourinho, Hicks declined.


Victory Grant 1-0

Chelsea manager Avram Grant was a relieved man after seeing his side squeeze past Queens Park Rangers 1-0 in the third round of the FA Cup.
Grant said: "It was a typical cup game. We did our job, that is most important for me. We are in the next round.

"QPR played tactically very well. They were very clever and closed the space very well.

"It was a game like we expected, we held the ball most of the time. They tried to score at set-pieces.

"We scored one goal and created more chances, but what is important is to be in the next round. In the cup it is important to do your job and we did that."

Meanwhile, Grant has admitted that he is on the lookout for several new players due to injuries and African Cup of Nations commitments.

"Because of all the injured players and everything else, we are thinking about everything," he added.

"Basically we didn't want to change so much because we have a good squad, but we have had some unexpected injuries and because of the African Nations Cup we are thinking about things."

On Friday, Drogba was named in the 23-man Ivory Coast squad for the tournament in Ghana.

"It is a difficult situation for me and for all the African players who are at the club and we want to play the maximum games for Chelsea," Drogba told Chelsea TV.

"I would like to play, but it is up to the manager to pick me.
