Portuguese club have received a fax on behalf of the coach announcing the termination of his contract due to the clause payment being met, paving the way for him to join the Blues.
Well, as an Arsenal fan I can only hope he doesn't have TOO successful a start to his Chelsea career ;) Interesting to see such a young manager whose achieved so much already. Are young managers now gonna be the new trend?
There are Chelsea players that are older than him, but no doubt he can be a great manager aslong as Chelsea give him time.
WOW.. this is a surpirse.. time is the most imp. thing specially for a young manager.. another good signing for chelsea this yr after luiz and torres :)
A lot of pressure is on him! Only 33years old. Not too much experience as manager. Easier to managing Porto than Chelsea.
he is young yes, but I think this is the best sign Chelsea could do. Managering Porto is not so small thing to do, Porto are big and big in Europe. I see Chelsea is a bigger club and only titles are good enough, but I think he will handled it. He has already done miracles with Porto this season. Amazing result! He also learned a lot from "the special one" him selves (Mourinho). so yes only 33years old, but exiting manager.
Chelsea - Villas-Boas Arsenal - Wenger City - manchini Liverpool - Dalglish ManU - Fergeson Amazing managers now in England! Can`t wait to august....
...First player he will buy; Falcao.
hopefully he'll bring some porto players with him, falcao, Fredy Guarín and moutinho would do nicely.
Will Porto be capable to challange in the champions league now ?
Probably not anymore. AVB should really have stayed with Porto for another year to get some CL experience. The pressure is really high for any Chelsea manager and I don't think he is ready for the Premier League. It's vastly different than Portuguese league where you only get competition from Benifica, Braga and sometimes Sporting. In the Premier League you got giants like ManC, ManU, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, and perhaps Tottenham.
If Andre didn't already know Chelsea inside out(an the Prem) I'd agree but serving under Jose at the club should allow him to know exactly what's coming.
