Chelsea: Luís André de Pina Cabral e Villas-Boas gets £20m for eight months failure
SO. Farewell André Villas-Boas. You were the Chelsea manager for half a season. The new Chelsea manger is Roberto Di Matteo.
Roman Abramovich paid Porto £13.3m to make Villas-Boas Carlo Ancelotti’s successor. The next manager will do well to negotiate a severance package and then fail utterly. Life is short. Get rich quick.

The Chelsea manager will be best remembered for his nice hair, ginger beard and need to be embraced whenever Chelsea scored a goal. His big failure was, of course, not to have won the Champions’ League with Chelsea. Sure, the final is not until May, but Roman Abramovich grew tired of waiting.
Luís André de Pina Cabral e Villas-Boas is off with massive pay-off (£20m) and the knowledge that it was on his watch that Justin Bieber pulled on a Chelsea strip. You says he never invested in youth?
Chelsea issue a statement:
“The board would like to record our gratitude for his work and express our disappointment that the relationship has ended so early.

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.”
As Villas-Boas Bieber once said:
“The owner didn’t pay 15million euros to get me out of Porto to pay me another fortune to get out.”
Until Romana Abramovich, for it is he, did…
