Cech: Villas-Boas Has To Do Better Than Mourinho

By on July 27, 2011

Chelsea stopper Petr Cech believes Andre Villas-boas has made a good start to his Blues career but admits former mentor Jose Mourinho has set the standard for the new boss.

The Czech international hopes the 33-year old manager will create stability to the club after seeing six managers coming and go in the past seven years. He told chelseafc.com:

“Six managers have been appointed Chelsea manager since I came to the club and unfortunately apart from Jose [Mourinho] who stayed three and a half years, nobody has stayed for long.


“I think you change the manager when you see there is no way to continue. Hopefully there will be a way to continue for Andre for many years. Now if we have a great season it will build a base for the manager to stay here.

“Everybody is different and managers come always with their own philosophy and they want to do their own thing,” Cech continued.

“Sometimes it does work and sometimes it doesn’t but Mourinho set the standard and the others have to try to do better than him.

“Since Andre was here working with Mourinho many things have changed. The club has changed and he has changed from being one of the technical staff to being the manager, and I think so far everything has been working really well and I hope it will continue.”
