OFFICIAL : AVRAM GRANT

 

BEC-Tero Sasana has officially appointed former Chelsea manager, Avraham Avram Grant as the team’s technical director. Apart from working closely with the club coaching staff, the 59-year-old Israeli will also oversee the training of the players.

Grant’s arrival in Thailand today afternoon reflects the club’s ambitions to regain its past glory and reaffirms BEC-Tero’s commitment to recruiting the best personnel to develop the team. In 2012, Sven-Goran Eriksson brought his legendary football knowledge to work with the Fire Dragons in a technical capacity and Grant’s appointment continues that tradition. Grant will immediately kick-start his new career by working closely with the club’s general manager, Robert Procureur and coach, José Alves.

Robert Procureur said, “This is a very exciting time for the club to have a legend like Avram Grant working with the club. Avram will attend all club training sessions and oversee the players’ technical development. This is a fantastic opportunity for our players to learn from such a highly-respected coach, and reflects BEC-Tero Sasana’s commitment to doing all it can to produce the best results for the club and its supporters.”
