Chelsea’s Villas-Boas Found A New Centre-Back For The Team.

Chelsea’s manager Andres Villas-Boas doesn’t seem to be too worried about his centre-back situation, at least not worried enough to take action in bringing outcast Brazilian defender back to the first team.

Ahead of the Fulham game AVB is hopeful that Luiz will be able to play after a knee injury which kept him away for a while, but says that Chelsea has other ways to cope with this situation.

“Hopefully, David can return for contention for the game against Fulham,” he said. “But, if not, from Oriol to Bosingwa, both can play in that position – and Paulo has done it in the past.”

“He is extremely interesting, a player of course that terminates his contract. But we would be stupid if we shortened our targets just to one.”

He added: “I think you know that we will be in the market for a centre-half. It’s pretty obvious based on the fact that we’ve accepted Alex’s transfer request.

“We’ll have to let the market open and then find out what happens regarding Alex.

“We will have to respond quickly in the market, not because of the urgency but because we’re willing to fill that position with one more central defender.”

Playing Oriol in the centre of the defence can’t be such a good idea, especially given that he just got to the Premier League and will still need some time to adapt. Changing his position altogether could prove too much to handle for the young Spaniard.
