Avram Grant charges £2 to text him on Cameo as site’s priciest football star

Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant charges £2 to message him on the popular video site Cameo.

Cameo allows users to pay a set fee to receive a video message from one of their favourite celebrities. The Israeli coach is football's most expensive star, charging £800 for a short video message. But if that's out of your price range, it's just a couple of quid to start a text message conversation with the 67-year-old ex-Portsmouth manager.

Grant's eye-watering price for a video message matches World Cup legend Roger Mila as the two most expensive football stars. Mila and Grant both charge £800, but ex-West Ham manager Grant donates all of his fee to charity, while it's unclear if Mila does the same.

The veteran manager was last at the helm of NorthEast United, on an interim basis, in the Indian Super League.

However, on English shores, Grant is best remembered for his spells in charge of Chelsea and Portsmouth. He was handed the difficult task of replacing Jose Mourinho, who had guided the London side to a first Premier League title, at Stamford Bridge.

Grant led Chelsea to a Champions League final in 2018, but after a John Terry slip, the Blues lost on penalties to Manchester United. The painful defeat came just days after Chelsea had finished runner-up to United in the Premier League by just two points – making Grant one of football's ultimate 'nearly men'.

The most expensive active footballer on Cameo is 36-year-old William Oluremi John. The Kansas-born midfielder charges a whopping £799.

John had enjoyed a decent career in his native America, before a move to Europe that has seen a journeyman stint in Denmark, Serbia, and Finland among others. However, he's yet to earn a full international cap.

John is currently in the Croatian second tier with NK Jarun. But he's better known for his YouTube channel GOLUREMI, which has more than 830,000 subscribers.
