Villas-Boas – I want to win every single week

The new Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas if fully aware of what he has taken on and understands that if he fails to win trophies he will be sacked. And he fully intends to hit the ground running and start winning from his first game in charge.

“The contract is a three-year contract, and the expectations of the club are to the maximum,” he said. “We have a compromise with a certain amount of trophies. That’s the challenge we face day to day, everybody wants to thrive to be the best and to win something.

‘I am just one gear in this big club that wants to be successful every year. Those are the challenges for me, to win as soon as possible and to build a solid platform for the future. This is nothing different from any other top club, the challenges you face in your day to day life are to be successful in what you do and that’s the challenge that I face in Chelsea.

‘The managers that sat in this chair for the last seven years have been challenged for the trophies. There is nothing the owner didn’t tell me, just to challenge in every way for every trophy and this is the kind of expectation at a top club like this one, or Man United or Arsenal. The other top clubs in England, they face this challenge for trophies and we want to get a big share.

‘Our compromise is the same as any top club, to win straight away on a weekly basis and that’s the challenge I face, there is no running away from that and I’d be surprised to be kept on the job if I don’t win. It’s as straightforward as that.

‘I want to be here to be a winner, not to be unsuccessful. That’s the challenge I promote to myself and promote to my technical staff and I think most of them took this challenge to be successful, not to be here just passing time because the city is good.

If I cannot challenge myself to be successful I fail and I don’t want to fail, I want to win so it is pretty straightforward for a club of this dimension and for the quality you have around. Who expects a Chelsea manager to stay if he wins nothing? It’s just like that.”

He can certainly talk the talk, but can he walk the walk?

    This fella surely knows what’s at stake in CFC, i hope he surely brings us success. But with the current squard, he’ll have a hugh task on his hand. I recommend,he evaluates the squard when they meet and thereafter make necessary signings. Goodluck to you AVB!

    He must aim for the Carling cup this year by fielding a strong team in each round.If this is achieved,i believe the other trophies will become a real possibility.
