Our in­ves­ti­ga­tions un­cover steps Ro­man is tak­ing to find a re­place­ment for AVB

CHELSEA FC are once again look­ing for a new man­ager af­ter sack­ing boss An­dre Vil­las Boas.

The 34-year-old was owner Ro­man Abramovich’s sev­enth boss in eight years at the club and now the search is on for his re­place­ment.

Amaz­ingly the young coach’s 40 games in charge have cost the club a to­tal of £50m – or £1.25m for each one.

And while that’s chicken feed for the club’s multi-bil­lion­aire Rus­sian owner, it’s a huge whack of money that could have been spent on a striker like, um, Fer­nando Tor­res.
