COBHAM, ENGLAND, UK (FEBRUARY 16, 2012) (REUTERS) CHELSEA MANAGER ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS PREPARING FOR NEWS CONFERENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA MANAGER ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS SAYING OF PREVIOUS SATURDAY'S DEFEAT AT EVERTON: "I think first of all it was for sure maybe our worst performance of the season. Having this in mind, I wouldn't say it was a pure reflection of what Chelsea has been doing in the past weeks; not that in terms of results we can be very, very satisfied, because they haven't been happening for quite some time" CHELSEA POSTER (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA MANAGER ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS SAYING: "I mean in the end there's always positives to take out from it. I think this is a project that everybody wants to be involved in and for you to continue to progress you have to, you have to, to make sure you are face-to-face and understand what are the current happenings in the team and the current happening in the team is that we are fifth in the league and it is not up to our level so everybody must push hard a little bit more" CHELSEA POSTER (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA MANAGER ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS SAYING OF CHELSEA PLAYERS POSSIBLY TEXTING FORMER MANAGER JOSE MOURINHO: "Well I think it's normal. I have an emotional attachment to the people I've managed in Academic(a) and Porto and I text them and they text back. So I think it's really normal on manager relationships with players that they have managed before" (Question: are your players texting Jose?) VILLAS-BOAS: "Oh for sure, for sure. I have no problem with it" NEWS CONFERENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA MANAGER ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS SAYING OF OWNER ROMAN ABRAMOVICH POSSIBLY ENTERING DRESSING ROOM AS WELL AS ATTENDING TRAINING: "No, he hasn't come to the dressing room so it's not comparable, the situation" (Question: would you block that?) VILLAS-BOAS: "No, I mean I don't block that, I am not the owner of the football club. I think the owner is entitled to do whatever he wants" (Question: on principle you're happy with owners in dressing rooms?) VILLAS-BOAS: "Yes, I think so" CAMERA LENS (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA MANAGER ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS ASKED IF ALL PLAYERS BACK HIS PROJECT, REPLYING: "It's the owners who back my project, it is the owner that backs my project" (Question: so some players might potentially not back your project?) VILLAS-BOAS: "But that is normal" CAMERAMEN (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA MANAGER ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS SAYING OF HIS FUTURE: "That is up to the owner to decide. I think the owner (has) full trust in me and we will continue to progress with the ideas that we have. In the end there is the objective of getting as best a position as possible in the league, plus these two trophies which we are fighting for. It will be extremely good for us if we win against Birmingham to put ourselves in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup" END OF NEWS CONFERENCE
