Villas-Boas believes Terry race row was turning point in his Chelsea tenure

Andre Villas-Boas believes the row between John Terry and Anton Ferdinand was a turning point in Villas-Boas’ own time at Chelsea, as the current Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach prepares to meet his former employers, according to the Guardian.

Prior to the match between Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers in October 2011, the newspaper explains, Chelsea had been in good form, within striking distance of the league leaders - and eventual Premier League champions - Manchester City.


But the tumultuous events of that afternoon at Loftus Road, where two Chelsea players were sent off and a Heidar Helguson penalty gave Neil Warnock’s side the points, were the catalyst for a Chelsea collapse, Villas-Boas has claimed.


The match was also the scene of Terry’s altercation with Ferdinand, for which Terry was eventually found guilty by the Football Association, banned for four games and fined more than £200,000, although he was cleared of a criminal offence by Westminster Magistrates’ Court.


Villas-Boas said: “When I go back to this date last season, before we played the QPR game and then our position at the end of the league and the events that happened after…


You have to gain stability and continuity. After QPR, we had a consecutive run of bad results. Football results are about stability and jumping from adversity. In my time at Chelsea, we never got that stability. We were always up and down.
