Avram Grant, who led Chelsea to the 2008 UEFA Champions League final, has quit as coach of Serbian champions Partizan Belgrade after only five months.

Grant said his departure was down to "personal reasons", without giving further details. Partizan at the same time announced that Grant's successor would be Vladimir Vermezovic, who previously led the team in 2004/05.

Grant has also coached the Israel national team as well as English sides Portsmouth and West Ham United.
