After Andre Villas-Boas was sacked from Chelsea, there is an on-going look-out for the next Chelsea manager. Luiz Felipe Scolari, former Chelsea boss, was with the team for seven months in the year 2008-09. Roman Abramovich is searching for the next manager to guide the team and according to Scolari, it “will be hell” to whoever fills in the position.
Villas-Boas was dumped a year into his tenure from the team by the Russian owner Roman Abramovich. After that Felipe Scolari went through a similar thing when he too was sacked in the year 2009. Scolari was part of the Brazil team and had won the World Cup with them in the year 2002. He came to Stamford in the year of 2008. Scolari is now in charge of the Brazilian Palmeiras. He said that it was unusual as to what happened but “not so strange” because he had gone through the same thing himself. He is making sure that all his warnings reach out to the ones seeking to step in as the new boss. He said that the place will be hell for whoever is to come in.
“Some things are known, like the relations with the chairman, who has the relationship with some players before the coach.
“Villas-Boas was a champion and he will continue to be. He needed to replace at least seven or eight players, even since I was there, but he failed.
On the other hand, trying to phase the public damage out, there is one man, Ray Wilkins. He was Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant in 2010 and fired as well. He says that the players are all a delight to work with.
“They are a very nice bunch of guys, they are a hard-working bunch and, coupled with that, they are an extremely talented bunch. We didn’t have a problem.”
He says that the players may be looking for a change and that is why the decision seems rapid and unusual. It takes a long time to change what has been in the norm, he said, but change is necessary and especially when it is most needed!
For now Roberto Di Matteo in in-charge of the team till the summer until a new boss can be found. The names that are currently in the net are of Josep Guardiola, Rafa Benitez and Mourinho.
