Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has said that former England manager Fabio Capello will be a tough act to follow given his stature and the understanding of the game.

Fabio Capello resigned from his England job in one of the most surprising events at the start of the New Year. Capello has been at loggerheads with the English Football Association ever since announcing that they were wrong in their decision to remove John Terry of the captain’s armband.

Chelsea defender John Terry has been accused of racially abusing QPR defender and fellow England teammate Anton Ferdinand earlier on in the season. As a result, John Terry has been subject to a trial, which has been postponed to the first week of July.

Due to the ongoing court case, the English football Association decided to remove the captain’s armband from John Terry. This is the second time the captain’s armband has been removed from John Terry. It was Fabio Capello who did that in the first instance, but the Italian came in support of John Terry by saying that the FA should consider reinstating him due to the fact that allegations against him have not been proven. However, after a heated argument with the FA officials, Fabio Capello handed over his resignation.

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has said that it will be tough for anyone to follow Fabio Capello. Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s big European match against Napoli (which Chelsea are slim favourites to win according to Champions League bet online markets), AVB was supportive of Capello.

“It will be very difficult for the FA to find a man who has Fabio Capello’s CV because he is one of the best in the world. He is a successful manager for most of the clubs. Spectacular qualification for Euro 2012 comes to an end before the tournament which is hard to take for the English national team,” Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas said when asked about Fabio Capello.
