The media knives have been out for Andre Villas-Boas for the past few weeks and the utensils have been sharpened following Chelsea’s 3-1 Champions League defeat in Naples last week.
Andre Villas-Boas has claimed the unswerving support of Roman Abramovich until this week where the former Porto coach admitted he could meet the same fate as Carlo Ancelotti.
However, Petr Cech claims that the Chelsea dressing room remains united and scoffs at suggestions that there is dressing room unrest.
Cech told Czech website isport.blesk.cz: “Everyone has been talking about a meeting between the team and Abramovich.
“The truth is elsewhere and the picture of that meeting was distorted.”
“The club is under constant pressure media. That’s the problem,” the Czech Republic international added.
“There is a lot of speculation and nonsense, but we have to live with it.
“The mood always derives from results so the mood is better,” Cech said.
“Tottenham lost at the weekend. We can to get closer and play for third place. We still have a chance to finish third but our aim is to finish fourth as the worst case scenario. That’s clear.
“I still believe things will turn for the better and our season will be successful.
“Everybody has been doing their best to change the situation. But what happens in training we are not able to take into competitive games. People can hardly say we’re not putting in enough effort.”
