Villas-Boas: Why I return to Chelsea with an extra name!

New Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has confessed he's a changed man - literally!

In his previous role at Chelsea as a first team coach, the new gaffer was known as Andre Villas.

He explained to chelseafc.com: "This is common in Portugal, we have big names and my name is not only Andre Villas-Boas but there are a couple of names in between.

"But in England we made things easier with two names, first and last. Now we have to try to expand the letters and maybe be fluent when we say the name, but it is not going to be easy!"
