Chelsea boss Villas-Boas happy with Abramovich's regular visits

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas insists he's happy to have Roman Abramovich visit regularly at the Cobham training ground.

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti claimed life became 'intolerable' towards the end of his two-year spell at Stamford Bridge, but Villas-Boas insists he can handle Abramovich's presence.

He said: "He knows a lot, he is very informed. He follows English and European football, so it's good to have an opinion.

"As for turning up, I don't always know - sometimes yes, sometimes no. It is legitimate for him to be there. He is a good person to share knowledge with. He asks me questions and I try to give him answers. There is great empathy and motivation for next year's project. His focus is with Chelsea, that is what he has transmitted to me."
