Drogba and Co must toe the line

JIMMY FLOYD HASSELBAINK insists Chelsea's elder statesmen will have no choice but to respect new manager Andre Villas-Boas.

The Portuguese signed a three-year deal to boss the Blues yesterday after faxing his resignation to Porto on Tuesday.

At 33, Villas-Boas is just three years older than skipper John Terry and the same age as star players Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

But Hasselbaink is adamant the club's big names will quickly learn to toe the line — regardless of their standing in the dressing room.

The Dutchman, who played for Chelsea from 2000 to 2004, said: "Villa-Boas is the boss and it doesn't matter what his age is.

"As a player you have to respect that and remember that you're working for the club.
