Feel for AVB, he had a great thing going on at Porto and left it for what seemed to be a very unhappy time at Chelsea.
Porto was a much smaller job TBF. His success at Porto didn't warrant him getting the Chelsea job. The job was to big for him.
He didn't have the man-management skills to deal with the the big players.
He should of handled a lot of situations better as wellIMO. We all no Lampard shouldn't be a confirmed starter every week, but the way AVB handled that situation was all wrong IMO.
Falling out with your senior players is always going to be disastrous.
