The brilliant Chelsea defender David Luiz is currently away with the Brazil squad, but he has made it his business to find out from his old Benfica team-mates back in Portugal what they think about the new Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas, and he is very happy with the reports.
He said: “I have spoken to my friends back in Portugal and I hear the same thing from everyone.
“They all say how Andre is very hands-on with the players and he gets his point across from day one.
“That is very positive at a club that dreams of titles. I’ve not worked with Mourinho, but my friends say Villas-Boas is more attack-minded.
“Perhaps that signifies a change in system for Chelsea in the new season.”
“With this coach, only the best footballers are assured of a place in the starting line-up.
“It will be great to have someone who is open with his squad and who will be decisive in our triumphs.
“Porto scored many goals under him, and they conceded few. He will expect plenty of concentration from us.”
It will definitely be a breath of fresh air to have AVB running the show, but I think he will be hard-pressed to be MORE attacking than the Chelsea team at the beginning of last season under Carlos Ancelotti. They were a joy to waych.
Let’s hop we can reach those heights again this year…..
