Former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has spoken ill about his spell as Chelsea manager, claiming it was ‘astonishing’ and that he wasn’t given the necessary support to be successful.

The Portuguese didn’t last a season as Chelsea manager and was sacked in March 2012.

AVB has described the Chelsea job as his ‘biggest learning experience’, according to The Times.

“Chelsea was the biggest learning experience of my time as a coach,” he said. “Every single day, every single training session, something new was happening. The lack of support was astonishing but that’s that.”

Speaking about his lack of support from the Chelsea board, he said: “That year I brought in Raul Meireles and Oriol Romeu after being denied a few names I had suggested when I met the club.

“The year after they spent £100m and the year after £110m, which shows the different approach from my time.”
