AVB Under Fire: Everton 2-0 Chelsea FC - Chelsea Tickets

Roman Abramovich, Owner Chelsea FC

Everton 2-0 Chelsea FC

After Chelsea FC was defeated again on Sunday, reportedly Blues owner Roman Abramovich is considering firing AVB just eight months after appointing him to replace Carlo Ancelotti. Abramovich was a regular fixture at Chelsea's training ground last week.

Andres Villas-Boas demanded a meeting with his squad after their sixth defeat in the Barclays Premier League this season saw them slip to fifth place. AVB called his squad on their day off into the  training ground, following which he put them through a punishing full session.

In an open discussion, AVB listened to advice from his men and was given a grilling by Abramovich in a separate meeting.

Reportedly Abramovich is considering alternatives to Villas-Boas.

Roman Abramovich sold Sibneft oil company to Russia's state-owned gas monopoly Gazprom in a multibillion-dollar deal in 2005. He has owned Chelsea football club since 2003. Currently, Berezovsky, the Kremlin critic and London-based exile, is suing Abramovich for more than $5 billion in what is the world's biggest private litigation battle. Berezovsky acted as a powerbroker for Abramovich in post-Soviet Russia.
