Villas-Boas: I won’t be sacked

FOOTBALL: Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas insists he does not fear the sack even if his side are knocked out of Europe against Valencia next week. The Blues have lost three in five Premier League games to slip 10 points behind leaders Manchester City and suffered back to back defeats in the Champions League and Carling Cup. But he defended his position again yesterday, saying he would not become the latest managerial casualty at Stamford Bridge “because I was brought in for a three-year project and we believe in it”.
