Benitez is not expected to stay beyond his current deal which expires at the end of the season following a reign which has been blighted by fan protests and public critcism of supporters as well as the club's board.
On top of that, Benitez has not exactly delivered sterling results on the pitch as the Blues are currently clinging on to fourth spot in the Barclays Premier League - they sit five points ahead of fifth placed Arsenal.
However, Grant just cannot understand why there seems to be so much negativity surrounding Benitez's time in charge at Stamford Bridge because he thinks the Chelsea job is easy.
"I don't think Rafa Benitez will be replaced any time soon," he said in The Sun.
"But, let me tell you something, coaching at Chelsea is very easy.
"It's way easier than coaching West Ham, for instance, because you have a very big budget and top players to choose from. All you have to do is go after the win."
He added: "Things aren't going well at Chelsea."
"They have made huge investments but the mood there is not good.
"They can't be happy when they are not challenging for the League.
"They don't like being in the Europa League and their players are not dreaming about being in that final.
"Their motivation would have been much greater in the Champions League."
Grant guided Chelsea to the Champions League final during his short tenure at the helm during the 2007-08 season.
He remains a close friend of the club's owner Roman Abramovich.
