Chelsea midfielder Ramires has publicly lauded Andre Villas-Boas, describing his Portuguese boss as
“Having the opportunity to meet him here is fantastic because I admire the work he did in Porto immensely, and the person he is as well means he is the best trainer I have ever had.”
After a hit-and-miss first season in English football, the Brazilian has flourished at the heart of Chelsea’s midfield this campaign and pinpoints Villas-Boas’ appointment as a key factor in his recent development.
“He is always giving you strength and belief, supporting you and telling you what you need to do. He is absolutely fantastic, very intelligent and understands the game amazingly well. As a person all the players think he is amazing and he treats us all equally.”
Villas-Boas will be hoping Ramires recovers sufficiently from a minor knee injury to line-up against QPR on Sunday.
