Villas-Boas on borrowed time at Chelsea

London, Tue, 14 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb.14 (ANI): Coach-cum-manager Andre Villas-Boas is in danger of losing his job after meetings with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.


Sources close to the Russian billionaire have suggested that he may have lost patience with Villas-Boas and is considering making a change less than seven months after appointing the 34 year-old.


According to The Telegraph, Guus Hiddink is in Abramovich's sights as a possible replacement.


Hiddink was in the running to succeed Carlo Ancelotti after the Italian was sacked last summer before Abramovich decided he wanted to make more dramatic changes at Chelsea and personally selected Villas-Boas.


However, with Chelsea fifth in the Premier League, after two wins in 10 matches and struggling for form, Abramovich has let both Villas-Boas and the first-team squad know in no uncertain terms that performances have not been good enough.


Abramovich has previously told Villas-Boas that he has full faith in him and that the club is embarking on a three-year plan - the length of the manager's contract - to create a "new Chelsea", overhaul the squad and adopt a more attacking style of play.


As things stand, according to sources, Villas Boas is likely to remain in charge of Saturday's fifth-round FA Cup tie at home to Birmingham City with next Tuesday's Champions League tie away to Napoli also looming.


If he fails to negotiate those matches successfully then it could lead to him being replaced. (ANI)
