After going without a gaffer for some time Chelsea unveiled Andre Villas – Boas as their seventh coach…Of from winning a treble with Porto many people are left to wonder. Is he the right man for the Stamford bridge hot seat, what has he achieved and why him!
Other than having worked as a member of the back room staff to Jose Mourinho’s not much can be said about him. For starters he is only 33, more than half the age of Sir Alex and younger than Frank Lampard. Despite the fact that Chelsea paid £13.2million just to activate the release clause in his contract signifies that there is something Abramovich must have seen in this lad. After how Carlo was fired I bet no respectable name in soccer wants the same to happen to him hence the reason many of them deciding to keep off.
I hope that he will take control of the dressing room known to have “super ego’s” in players such as Drogba, Lampard and John Terry. He is expected to make some changes here and there, expect to see Malouda, Anelka, Lampard and Terry or even Drogba to seek greener pastures. There is talk of him signing top striker Falcao and Joao Moutinho Porto’s equivalent of Xavi who I believe can make Torres shine again. Many are still waiting to see whether or not Luka modric, Neymar, Lukaku will join Chelsea.
The Chelsea job is rumored to be more difficult than that of the Prime Minister, It is hoped that he will be given time to build and gel this team. There should be no immediate pressure on wining all the 4 trophies this season. Good luck on your appointment Mr. Boas!
See you all in August when the EPL resumes…Sir Alex watch out Chelsea is coming back for their Tittle!.
