Villas-Boas promises Chelsea players "new way of being"

Chelsea’s new manager has said that he will be approachable to all squad-members as he prepares to lead the team through pre-season training. Villas-Boas, 33, will be close in age to many of the senior players at Stamford Bridge and it seems he will use this to his advantage and strike up close working relationships with the players.

Speaking to the Metro he said: “We are very open-minded, we are open to them, to their problems and not only the problems they face on the pitch but problems they face in their day-to-day life. We are not just managers of the game, we are people who understand the person as a whole. This is something we feel can have a good impact”.

Speaking about the job he’s been entrusted by Roman Abramovich he said: “Carlo has left for this club some important things and we want to continue building from where he left. This is a new leadership, a new communication, a new way of being. Hopefully we can start the season with a tremendous impact and this new empathy”.

Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant worked with Villas-Boas when he was part of the back-room staff at Stamford Bridge. He said: “He is a very nice guy, he’s intelligent, a nice person. Does he have the experience? No. But the authority? Time will say. I think yes”.

Villas-Boas will be the youngest manager in the Premier League and will be under huge pressure from Roman Abramovich to bring Chelsea back to trophy-winning form.

    Lets not deceive ourselves,let this man do away with the aged Chelsea players for a total overhauling of the team. If he works with them and later fail,will we blame the ageing squared or the coach? The first thing Pep did in Barcelonalfc was to offload the ageing payers of his team and bringing in new and fresh players,we all saw what he has achieve by taking this step. Chelsea case shouldn’t be an exception. Well,he knows what he’ll do!
