Chelsea boss Villas-Boas to make English media debut today

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas will be unveiled to the local media today.

Villas-Boas promised evolution not revolution after succeeding experienced Italian Carlo Ancelotti, who celebrated an historic league and FA Cup double in his first full season at the helm before being unceremoniously axed after a barren campaign and early Champions League exit to eventual finalists Manchester United.

When he goes in front of the English media for the first time, Villas-Boas - whose release from his Porto contract cost 13.2million Euros (£11.8million) - is likely to face questions over whether he was first choice for the position.

Guus Hiddink's agent claims the Turkey coach was the man Chelsea wanted, which has since been denied by club officials.
