Andre Villas-Boas: Chelsea Will Win Trophies With Flair

New Stamford Bridge boss understands the pressure.

New Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas will attempt to  win “trophies in every area” by playing attractive and attacking football.

The 33-year-old became the Blues seventh boss in eight years under owner Roman Abramovich’s reign.

The Portuguese coach insists he is not fazed by the demands for success placed on managers at Stamford Bridge.

Carlo Ancelotti was sacked a year after he guided the club to their first league and cup double, but it is the Champions League which the Russian billionaire covets the most.

But Villas-Boas says the challenge of consistently securing silverware is one he will relish.

At his official presentation on Wednesday, Villas-Boas says “the expectations of the club, you know what they are. There’s nothing the owner told me that I didn’t know.”

The former Chelsea and Inter Milan scout revealed his approach will be “winning with a certain amount of attacking flair.”

“The expectations are for the maximum,” he added. “We want to win trophies, that is the challenge we face day by day in any business.

“Everyone wants to be the best and win something and the challenge is to win as soon as possible and to build a platform for the future.

“This is nothing different from any other club, the challenge in your everyday life is to be successful in what you do and that is the challenge I face here.”

Villas-Boas says he was offered an “extremely competitive offer” to stay at FC Porto, better than Chelsea’s, and acknowledged it was a “difficult separation” from the Portuguese champions.
