Villas-Boas prepared to offer counselling to Chelsea players

Andre Villas-Boas has stated he is not just the football manager of Chelsea but will also help players in their personal lives as well. The Portuguese coach may be only 33, but knows the modern game is more than just harmony on the field which will prove key to sustained success.

"We are very open-minded, we are open to them, to their problems and not only the problems they face on the pitch but their problems that they face in their day-to-day life," Villas-Boas told Chelsea TV.

"We are not just managers of the game, we are people who understand the person as a whole. This is something that we feel can have a good impact."
