I won't be sacked, says Villas-Boas
Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas reacted angrily after his team's 1-2 loss to Liverpool on Sunday night at Stamford Bridge and insisted that he wouldn't be fired by club owner Roman Abramovich.
A brilliant late goal by Glen Johnson, against his former club, gave Chelsea their third defeat in four Premier League games. Chelsea are now 12 points behind Manchester City and Villas-Boas conceded it was a 'bad blow'.
"It is not a question of the owner having patience. We have set out to build something new. The owner didn't pay 15 million euros to get me here form Porto only to pay another fortune to get me out.
"Our commitment is towards the club and what we are doing in the future. We have enough talent to compete in all competitions, and that's the perspective we take at the moment," Villas-Boas was quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.
