Andre Villas-Boas admits he is unsure over his future at Chelsea
Andre Villas-Boas has admitted he fears for his future as Chelsea manager.
Villas-Boas, 34, has always said he has the backing of owner Roman Abramovich.
But in an interview with Portuguese radio station TSF he says he could go the same way as Carlo Ancelotti, who was sacked last May.
“It’ll be one of two [reactions] – a continuation of the project and full support or just the cultural pattern that has happened before,” said Villas-Boas.
“We don’t know if it’ll be tomorrow or in two years from now.
“It’ll depend upon what is your understanding of what is happening at the moment.”

Andre Villas-Boas is right to be a worried man, Blues owner Roman Abramovich has a history of axing manager’s who fail to bring home the footballing bacon. Carlo Ancelotti left his Stamford Bridge tenure DESPITE completing the domestic double in his first campaign and finishing second in the Premier League last term. Therefore given that the current Chelsea boss has taken the West London side to fifth spot thus far, it would take a brave man to bank on the young Portuguese boss to be in his post come next term.
A lot could depend on how they fare against Napoli in the second leg of their Champions League encounter. They go into that match 3-1 down and if they fail to mount a successful comeback against the Italians then perhaps Chelsea’s Russian supremo will axe Villas-Boas immediately.
What is perhaps more likely is that the 34 year old will be given until the end of the campaign to clinch a top four spot and if he fails to do so then he will surely be for the chop.
Chelsea have notched up a top four finish in the past nine seasons so a failure to do so this term can only be seen as a huge blip and one that Villas-Boas would be unlikely to recover from.
Currently Arsenal edge their London rivals on goal-difference and the likes of Newcastle United and Liverpool are also waiting in the wings and pushing for that coveted Champions League spot.
