AVB unsure over his future

Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that he is worried about his future at the club.

Up until now he’s always stated that he has the backing of owner Roman Abramovich but in an open interview with Portuguese radio station TSF said: “It’ll be one of two [reactions], a continuation of the project and full support or just the cultural pattern that has happened before.”

And even said, “We don’t know if it’ll be tomorrow or in two years from now. It’ll depend upon what is your understanding of what is happening at the moment.”

The season hasn’t gone well and the club find themsleves 17 points behind league leaders Manchester City and recently lost to 3-1 to Napoli in the first leg  of the Champions League.

Should the club fail to qualify for the Champions League then it would be a disaster and it would most likely see the end of AVB.

The Blues currently have one more point than they did this time last season and have gone further in the both the FA and League Cup, but it looks like the team are unlikely to win anything this season.

Rather worryingly AVB admitted some of the squad are not backing his ‘project’ but Roman Abramovich does, should that change he could get the boot like so many before him.

  1. I think sacking AVB will be a bad move. AVB is building a new team and he has proven that he knows how to find the right players. It was under AVB that we brought in Mata and Romeu, and both have done exceptionally well. Other young players like Ramires, Luiz and Sturridge have come alive under his reign. Things are only difficult right now because he is trying to keep morale high in a team that will lose its older players when the summer comes. This is not an easy position for him, and I hope Abramovich recognizes this. It is accentual that AVB gets the players that he wants. I don’t think Ancellotti ever showed the ambition for a young attacking team like AVB. AVB is the man, but he is yet to build his team. When he does I think it will be quite special. I think it’s likely to have some special individuals like Hazard, Hulk or Cavani.

  2. It will be interesting to see who he will bring in – he is trying to build something but it's hard to see the team struggle after so much recent success.
