Villas-Boas launches attack on football pundits and media

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has slammed some of the ‘ridiculous’ coverage that certain aspects of the media have given his team, The Daily Mirror reports.

Football pundits such as Gary Neville, Graeme Souness and Alan Hansen have criticised the Blues in recent weeks and have brought fury from Villas-Boas. The 34 year old has launched into a tirade against the pundits and in particular Neville, who claimed that Chelsea defender David Luiz looked as if he was ‘controlled by a ten year old’ playing Playstation in the crowd.

The Portuguese boss claimed that Neville has no right to speak about the Chelsea dressing room and believes the pundits hold a bias against the Blues, due to their previous attachments with other sides. Chelsea face Manchester City on Monday in what will be a huge match for the Blues’ title expectations.

Villas-Boas said: ‘When there is comic criticism and this lack of in-depth criticism from top ex-professional players, when they take the route to the ridiculous, I think I have a word to say. We know that most of these people we are speaking about have a direct past related to single clubs, which are their favourite clubs, which in the end brings a likely biased position in their opinion-making.’
