Chelsea have officially unveiled Andre Villas-Boas as their new manager at Stamford Bridge this morning – with the poor sod having to face the English press for the first time in his new capacity and, as you’ll be fairly unsurprised to know, it didn’t take long until questions about a certain fellow Portuguese dreamboat began to fart forth.

When asked what Mourinho-esque title he would like the media to bestow unto him, AVB replied:

“The title? I will wait for you guys to give it me when I am successful. I hope I am and you can give me a good title.

“This is not a one-man show, this is about creating empathy, ambition and motivation in everybody.

“Maybe I should be called ‘the Group One’, as I want to group people together and be successful.”


Oh yeah, and Roberto Di Matteo is his new assistant.

“I swear, if you mention Jose Mourinho one more time…”
