Andre Villas-Boas remains defiant at Chelsea


Andre Villas-Boas has put a rest to all rumors and declared he would not be leaving his position at Chelsea voluntarily and instead his future rests in the hands of club’s owner Roman Abramovich.

The Portuguese was under no false pretenses that his club’s faltering performance was to augment his prospects of a further season in the Blue’s hot seat. But he did also say that he would not leave his three year project with the club.


Vilas-Boas has been at the center of criticism lately due to poor performances by the club consecutively. The last win over Bolton may just have been his saving grace with rife rumors speculating that loss over Bolton would have been the last nail in the coffin and could have cost him his position!

Abamovich has never fancied silverware at the Bridge. But speaking realistically the clubs best bet is to aim at the FA Cup. However to actually win that they would need to win against Birmingham City at St Andrew’s first.

Villas-Boas put up a bold appearance in his press conference on Friday and maintained that he will not leave because of the mounting pressure.

He said: 'I'd never resign, I'd never give up. It's not part of my education.'

When questioned if he deserved to stay, he said : : 'You have to ask the owner.”

'It's only him who can say if there is that right to continue to portray the future or not.'

Carlo Ancelotti was discharged as Blues manager even though he delivered the club at Premier League and FA Cup double right before the season. Ambramovich’s axe now appears to be looming over the 34 year old Villas Boas.

'Failure to win any trophies at a club of this dimension is not good enough,' Villas-Boas said.

'It is something we cannot accept and so we have to take responsibility for that, the management, for sure.

'It happened last year, after a double-winning side.

'If it happens this year again, we'll have to reflect more in depth on what is going wrong. There are signs of things you have to avoid.'

Villas-Boas is not shying away from owning up to his mistakes and is admitting to having made mistakes but retains his optimism to correcting them.

'We haven't had the results that we should have for the squad we have, and in normal circumstances we would be ahead of those teams,' he said.

'We have been underperforming. But we can still improve for the rest of the season.'
