Avram Grant recalls being in an art gallery with Roman Abramovich, admiring one of the Russian's many paintings. Chelsea's owner, and at the time Grant's boss, whispered how it had cost £25million.
'Pity,' said Grant. 'My daughter would have done the same picture for you for 25 quid.'
Grant might not be much of an art lover but he does speak as he finds, as he demonstrated to Abramovich that day and again during his only major interview ahead of today's FA Cup final.
