Andre Villas-Boas has admitted he could get the sack if Chelsea don't win anything but he is not going to quit.
The Portuguese tactician has had a tough time at Stamford Bridge since he took over in the summer and his position at the club has come under intense scrutiny.
Last Saturday's win over Bolton relived some of the pressure on Villas-Boas but there is still plenty of speculation suggesting he could be replaced at any moment.
The 34-year-old was charged with rebuilding the Blues squad when he took over but so far any changes he has made haven't paid dividends and last weekend it was Blues legend Frank Lampard who spearheaded the 3-0 win over the Trotters.
Chelsea take on West Brom this weekend but having turned back to the players that have served Chelsea well over the years, a second generation of Blues heroes seems as far away as ever.
A win in the Fa Cup or Champions League and a finish in the top four might be enough to make sure Villas-Boas gets a second year at the club but one thing is for sure, he is not going to quit.
He said: "I'd never resign, I'd never give up. It's not part of my education.
"Failure to win any trophies at a club of this dimension is not good enough.
"It is something we cannot accept and so we have to take responsibility for that, the management, for sure."
