Villas-Boas backs Chelsea stadium move

According to The London Evening Standard, Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas believes that the fans should support the club’s bid to buy Stamford Bridge so they can build a new stadium on the site.

The land which the stands and the pitch are built on is owned by supporter-run Chelsea Pitch Owners, but owner Roman Abramovich is attempting to buy it in order to build a new 60,000 capacity stadium, despite fan opposition.

“I think the most important thing for us is to position ourselves for the future,” said Villas-Boas. “The club has made a good decision on that front.

“When Porto left their old stadium, nobody liked the idea, but that move took Porto into the future, brought more revenues and allowed us to play in a magnificent stadium. That’s my experience,” he concluded.
