Chelsea is sack-predictable – Andre Villas Boas


Former Chelsea manager Andre Villas Boas believes the Blues’ sacking of Roberto Di Matteo was not at all a surprise.

Villas Boas was replaced at Stamford Bridge by the Italian and saw his replacement lead the club to Champions League and FA Cup glory, however, after just three months in full charge Di Matteo received his marching orders by Roman Abramovich following two straight defeats, despite being  only four points adrift of the top of the Premier League table.

The Portuguse boss, now in charge at London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, believes the decision was always on the cards. Telling Skysports he said:

“At Chelsea, I think another sacking is just like any other day at the office. That’s my interpretation.

“Roberto has achieved so much in such a little amount of time. His CV is maybe one of the best in the world now – he has won the Champions League and the FA Cup too. 

“It was difficult for Robbie and I wish him well for the rest of his career.

“Regarding the club, it’s their decision, it’s what they think will take them forward but other than that I can’t comment.”

I have a wide range of genre from player profiles to match previews and match reports to news bulletins. A large bulk of my work has been on a voluntary basis to gain some experience, however it is my ambition in life to become a sports editor/journalist as I find the line of work fascinating and exciting. I sincerelely hope I can produce work of a substantial quality on and would love to gain a good rapport with its readers.


  1. I dnt blame RDM 4 the formation against juvi bcos playing wit torres is lyk playng wit minus one. Torres is the cos of RDM sacking. We are no more true blue but blue red bcos we ve been infultrated by our rivals, livapul. Torres emerging high goal scorer this season stil doesnt change the fact that he is a traitor. Thank u RDM

    • I do find it ridiculous how someone who has been in charge for less than a year and wins champs league and fa cup is getting sack. Ive always loved football but money is taking over now i dread to think what its going to be like in a decade.
