Villas-Boas is a gamble - Hasselbaink

Former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says it is "refreshing" that owner Roman Abramovich has invested so much faith in an upcoming talent like Andre Villas-Boas.

Hasselbaink believes that the 33-year-old can "grow" with Chelsea, but feels it is unfair to compare him with mentor Jose Mourinho.

Former Porto coach Villas-Boas signed a three-year-deal to take over at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, succeeding Carlo Ancelotti as manager.
