“You free them from the limitations that they might have in a different kind of system but, in the end, you make them believe in their qualities and this is the most important thing,” said the 33-year-old.


“Coming here is not just a question of big, radical changes. You have to be clear in what you do and decide well and I'm confident that we have enough people with the quality here to go forward.”

Villas-Boas club after he spent three and-a-half seasons at Stamford Bridge as an opposition scout under Jose Mourinho.

“The club hasn't stopped in time since I left, it has evolved in various ways. But to have the kind with people who meant a lot to me when I was here.

“We able to do and what their ambitions are, is something important to me. I think we are on for a great season.”
