THE Premier League manager seen visiting a "Thai" vice den was named last night as Avram Grant.
Speculation raged worldwide after The Sun revealed a top-flight boss spent more than an hour in the seedy massage parlour.
Creeping privacy laws in the UK - based on the Human Rights Act - meant we were barred from naming him last December.
But in the wake of England captain John Terry's failed bid to gag the press over his affair, we can now name Portsmouth chief Grant, who previously managed Terry at Chelsea.
Hampshire Police are investigating the parlour, which is staffed by Asian "massage" girls in Horton Heath, Southampton.
Israeli Grant, 54, has been wed for 16 years to actress Tzofit, 45. They have two children but she did not follow him to England when he moved here.
He faces being quizzed by vice squad officers over his visit to the brothel.
Cops will speak to clients who would be witnesses if anyone is accused of living off immoral earnings.
A police spokesman said: "We are aware allegations have been made in connection with that location." A source close to the inquiry added: "We want to speak to clients who might be potential witnesses."
The revelation is another blow for bottom-of-the-table Portsmouth, who face massive debts and lost 1-0 at Fulham last night.
