Avram Grant, Portsmouth’s new director-of-football, is set to undertake an English exam today in order to work in his new role.
Despite managing Chelsea and having a previous stint at Pompey, Grant must show he has comprehension of the English language, written and spoken.
CEO Peter Storrie explained this was due to a recent rule change that took place in the summer.
He said: “The rules for non-Europeans were changed in the summer.
“And Avram is no exception despite his clear knowledge of England, English football and the language.
“It has been a long-winded process but the end is in sight.”
Fans will be hoping Grant will join up with manager Paul Hart and the rest of the squad soon, as they plan to put a disappointing 3-1 loss at Blackburn behind them.
Grant has already met the players however, with rumours suggesting he was a man of small words, saying, “Hello”, “Good luck” and “Goodbye”.
