Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has taken his players on a bonding trip to Majorca.

The Daily Mail says Villas-Boas will take his flagging Chelsea players on a five-day trip to Majorca next week designed to boost team morale.

Villas-Boas has been given permission by his bosses at Stamford Bridge to take the players on a mid-season team-bonding trip to the same destination favoured by legendary Derby, Leeds and Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough, who referred to the Spanish island as his 'branch office'.
