Andre Villas-Boas has angrily accused Gary Neville and other big-name ex-players of biased punditry when criticising his Chelsea side.

Villas-Boas' war of words with Neville escalated on Friday as the Blues boss let rip at the former Manchester United captain, who has been outspoken in his assessment of the Blues' deficiencies in recent weeks.

Villas-Boas, who has also taken umbrage at criticism from Liverpool legends Alan Hansen and Graeme Souness since his appointment as Chelsea boss, said: "Most of these people we are speaking about have a direct past related to single clubs, which are their favourite clubs, which in the end brings a likely biased position in their opinion-making."
