Villas-Boas admits fears for the sack if Chelsea miss out on Champions League

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted he will be sacked if the club do not finish within the top four this season, The Daily Star reports.

The Portuguese manager has been under scrutiny from owner Roman Abramovich, who called a crisis meeting on Sunday following a 2-0 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park. Abramovich has also been a regular visitor to training in recent weeks.

Chelsea fans also turned on their manager, who lamented the game at Goodison Park as ‘one of the worst displays of the season’. The Blues travelling supporters were unhappy with the decision to substitute Michael Essien and made their feelings known to Villas-Boas. Chelsea have slipped out of the top four and when asked if fourth place was a minimum achievement, Villas-Boas had a frank answer.

‘Of course, of course, of course. Now we are sixth, level on points with the fourth team. We know exactly what our targets are for the season. There are still plenty of games to play. There is an objective and we have set out to reach the objective. We need Champions League qualification and that’s what we expect’, Villas-Boas said.
