Porto’s Rolando has stated that he would love to work with former manager Andre Villas Boas again, and has issued a come-and-get-me plea to Chelsea.
The Portuguese champions had a massively successful 2010/11, winning their domestic league and the Europa League, with much of the credit given to attackers Hulk and Radamel Falcao. Despite this, the side from the Estadio do Dragao had a miserly defence also, and the Portugal international centre back was the key reason for this.
Similar to what Jose Mourinho did when he first joined Chelsea, the new coach is expected to raid his former club for players, something the 25-year-old would relish.
“Andre Villas-Boas has my number. If he is interested, he knows that I loved working with him,” the Cape Verde born man stated in The Daily Mail.
“I have been in Porto for three years now and now could be a good time to leave, I just want to continue to win, whether here or somewhere else. There are clubs in Europe who Porto cannot compete with, financially, and if an offer comes in, we will see,” he concluded.
Villas Boas is yet to make his first signing as Chelsea manager.
