Manager Andre Villas-Boas has declared he would "never" quit Chelsea, even if they ended up empty-handed this season.

Blues boss Villas-Boas reiterated failure to win any silverware was "not good enough" at Stamford Bridge and admitted that could cost him his job. But he made it clear Roman Abramovich would have to sack him because there was no walking away from his three-year project.

He said: "I'd never resign, I'd never give up. It's not part of my education."

Asked if he would deserve to avoid the axe under those circumstances, he said: "You have to ask the owner.

"It's only him who can say if there is that right to continue to portray the future or not."

Abramovich has fired every one of his managers who ended a season empty-handed.

"Failure to win any trophies at a club of this dimension is not good enough," Villas-Boas said.

"It is something we cannot accept and so we have to take responsibility for that, the management, for sure. It happened last year, after a double-winning side.

"If it happens this year again, we'll have to reflect more in depth on what is going wrong. There are signs of things you have to avoid."
