Villas-Boas unimpressed by Chelsea´s choices

9 January 2013 21:51

Andre Villas-Boas has criticised his former club Chelsea over their lack of long-term planning.

The Portuguese coach was appointed by Chelsea ahead of the 2011/12 season but was sacked and replaced by his assistant Roberto Di Matteo after just nine months.

Di Matteo suffered the same fate this term - despite having led the west London side to their maiden Champions League triumph - and Villas-Boas has hit out at the club's trigger-happy hierarchy.

"There are no plans at Chelsea," Villas-Boas told The Sun.

"It's results that rule. There are times in football when it's easier to replace the coach, but when you embrace a project you believe in people.

"There was a commitment from Abramovich and his word was given, yet there was a premature departure."

The former Porto coach was keen to express his happiness at Tottenham and believes Spurs are on track for a successful season.

"We're achieving what we've been asked to achieve," Villas-Boas said.

"We're still in the Europa League and third in the Premier League."
