Andre Villas-Boas does not regret referee criticism

Following his heavy criticism of referee Chris Foy following Sunday’s defeat at Queen’s Park Rangers, Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas claims he does not regret his statements nor wish to withdraw them.

Chelsea were fined £25,000 for the part in the game, collecting two red cards and seven bookings. It is these cards that Villas-Boas appears to take issue with, and when he is to stand in front of the Football Association in relation to charges about his post-match comments this week, The Guardian reports that he will defend his words as opposed to apologise for them.

“I don’t think I said anything I shouldn’t have. I was cold, emotionally, and chose the right words, and I never doubted the referee’s integrity. It is a game refereed by humans, so human mistakes will always be present. I am not questioning the referee’s integrity but his decision-making in this game.”
