Portsmouth coach Grant's wife okay with his Thai massages

Posted By: Staff

London, Feb.5 (ANI): Portsmouth boss Avram Grant's Israeli actress wife Tzofit says she has no problem with him visiting brothels for a Thai massage, and added that she would accompany him on his next visit.

Tzofit claimed her hubby only went for a "massage" in a bid to combat the immense stress he is under.

Forty-six-year-old Tzofit, the mother of the couple's two teenage kids, spoke out after The Sun exposed the Pompey chief's visit to a Southampton brothel.

Tzofit, who once drunk her own urine live on telly, said she had always encouraged Grant to go for massages to help him deal with the pressure of football management.

Tzofit has been married to Grant for 16 years, and insisted the revelations had not damaged their marriage.

She said: "Avram will not be suing the papers even though he only went to the place for a massage. It's not a brothel but a massage parlour. Considering the pressure that Avram is under at Portsmouth, I'm angry with him for not going every day to have a massage. Avram loves a massage. He enjoys an Australian massage, a Japanese massage and a Thai massage."

"I'm looking forward to coming over to England to visit Avram and going to have a massage there together with him," she added.

Tzofit told The Sun she could not understand "what all the fuss is about in Britain" because her husband is not a publicly elected figure.

"It's his own business what he does with his body, and he certainly has not damaged our marriage. He doesn't have to tell me everything. He doesn't tell me he went to the store to buy milk. I don't know why what he did is being compared to what John Terry did," she said from her plush residence in Tel Aviv. (ANI)
