Mata full of support for Chelsea boss AVB

Chelsea winger Juan Mata insists that all involved at the London club are confident in the abilities of manager Andre Villas-Boas.

The Blues results have dipped in recent times with three draws and a loss prior to the turn of the New Year but a hard-fought 2-1 win over Wolves on Monday has got things back on track.

Villas-Boas has come under fire from many critics but Mata has made it clear that all the players are fully supportive of the Portuguese.

"It's true we've had a little crisis of results," said Mata. "But Villas-Boas is doing things very well and both the players and the club have a lot of confidence in him.

"He won everything with Porto last year.

"I get along with the coach and he tries to talk to every player in his own language."
