In developing news, Chelsea has sacked manager Andre Villas-Boas.
The last straw was Chelsea’s 1-0 loss in an unconvincing performance yesterday against West Bromwich Albion. His Chelsea side also faces possible elimination from the Champions League after a 3-1 loss in Napoli.
Villas-Boas said yesterday that he was not sure if he would still be in charge at Stamford Bridge before the mid-week FA Cup replay against Birmingham City.
A club statement read: “The board would like to record our gratitude for his work and express our disappointment that the relationship has ended so early.
“Unfortunately the results and performances of the team have not been good enough and were showing no signs of improving at a key time in the season.
“The club is still competing in the latter stages of the Uefa Champions League and the FA Cup, as well as challenging for a top-four spot in the Premier League, and we aim to remain as competitive as possible on all fronts. With that in mind we felt our only option was to make a change at this time.”
Roberto Di Matteo will be temporary charge of Chelsea until they find a new manager.
But now that Andre Villas-Boas has left, who do you think should take charge of Chelsea FC?
