Arsenal legend Wright: Chelsea job came too soon for Villas-Boas

Arsenal legend Ian Wright feels the Chelsea job has come too soon for Andre Villas-Boas.

Wright wrote in The Sun: "AVB always knew Chelsea was a pressure job and now people are saying he is one game away from the sack at Stamford Bridge.

"Maybe that is over the top but a heavy loss away to Napoli tonight will not be of much help.

"Chelsea have had some great managers in the Premier League. Phil Scolari was not a good choice but the others - Claudio Ranieri, Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti - were all hard done by.

"AVB's career is currently in Blues owner Roman Abramovich's hands and, if he is dismissed, you wonder where the young Portuguese manager will go.

"Mourinho has said the job came a couple of years too early for AVB, 34, and maybe he is right.

"I do feel a degree of sympathy for him, though, as he is clearly a good coach."
