Israel’s police are yet to start a formal investigation against former Chelsea manager Avram Grant since no official complaint has been lodged against him.
Grant has been accused of sexual harassment on a television programme.
Police in Tel Aviv said on Tuesday that none of the women who made the allegations in a broadcast aired on Sunday had lodged an official complaint against the 67-year-old former manager.
Grant who also formerly coached Israel’s national team made mentioned that he had several relationships with women over the years but never intended to make a woman feel uncomfortable or hurt her. In his words, he said:
“If a woman had felt that way, I am sorry. I apologize.”
Football’s ruling body FIFA said on Monday it was also looking into the allegations against Grant who recently coached a FIFA Legends team at the Arab Cup.
“When it comes to misconduct and abuse in football, we wish to reiterate that FIFA takes any allegations reported to it very seriously,” FIFA said.
