Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti backs the current manager Andres Villas-Boas after the bad results Chelsea got in the last matches. The Italian coach says that the manager is not to blame for the bad run, but the players in the team who are now “too old”
“Villas-Boas cannot work miracles. This is an old team now.”
“It is exactly the same team as the one I left, with the exception of Juan Mata and Raul Meireles.”
“The problem is not Villas-Boas, it is with the team that he has.”
“Andre is young and inexperienced, but he has done well and he is talented.”
“I feel Roman (Abramovich) needs to give him time to sort it out and make his ideas work.”
This is a topic which was discussed over and over again right after the Portuguese took over the team. The press was saying back then that the coach is much younger than a part of the team and that won’t bring good results. The problem isn’t that the coach is too young, but that the team is too old, or at least that’s what Ancelotti thinks. What about you?
