Chelsea Manager Will Not Listen To Senior PlayersFebruary 23 | Posted by R.T | > News, Champions League highlights, English Premier League highlights
Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas insists he will not give in to the pressure of his senior players having an issue with the first team selection, and that he is the man to make the decisions and not the players.
The Portuguese boss, in his press conference after the UEFA Champions League defeat to Napoli, said, “The players that they are and the players with the experience they have, they felt they could have helped the team. That’s perfectly understandable.
“Of course, they were disappointed but they were decisions they have to accept and move on.”
“Ashley was a difficult decision taken yesterday, I am sure from tomorrow’s training onwards he will continue to fight for his position as he normally does. It’s his position to take and nothing else.
“[Lampard and Essien] was technical decisions. In the end it would be fantastic if we win the game, any explanation is useless given the result of the game.”
