Wenger backs Villas-Boas to succeed

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has offered words of sympathy to Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas after criticisms over the Portuguese man’s work, The Daily Express reports.

Villas-Boas has looked to change the philosophies of Chelsea and Wenger sees similarities in what happened when he arrived to London 15 seasons ago. Many wonder whether the 34 year old will have the same time as Wenger and although Villas-Boas insists he will have three years, the impatience of owner Roman Abramovich has been blatant for all to see. Wenger believes that Villas-Boas has to quickly convince the Chelsea players that the way he works is correct or else he may lose the dressing room easily.

The Blues have lost five times in nine games and Villas-Boas is under scrutiny as Chelsea make the trip to Newcastle under the Sky cameras on Saturday. ‘I have big sympathy for him. I like him personally. I think he is intelligent, competent. It is not easy, but in our job, you can only survive if you do how you feel. It is hard to change a philosophy, but I believe when a manager has strong players in the squad and they share what he thinks, it makes him stronger’, Wenger said.
