Chelsea boss shrugs off fans’ criticism

Andre Villas-Boas shrugged off criticism from Chelsea fans during his team’s 2-0 defeat at Everton.

The Blues boss is under increasing pressure following poor results and reports that owner Roman Abramovich is running out of patience.

And some of the travelling supporters barracked him at Goodison Park, where their team’s defeat saw them drop out of the top four.

Villa-Boas said: “It is part of the job. At the moment we are fifth in the league and it’s not good enough for us.”

The Portuguese, who left recent signing Gary Cahill on the bench, made no excuses for his team’s listless display.

Steven Pienaar netted the opener for Everton after only five minutes and an error by Ashley Cole led to Denis Stracqualursi doubling the Merseysiders’ lead.

“Today was one of our worst games of the season. I think the worst in every sense of the word,” Villas-Boas admitted.

“In our performance we aren’t sure of anything positive. It was a difficult day for us with a lot of negatives.”
