Andre Villas-Boas decides to keep quiet over the red card handed to Andre Villas-Boas earlier today.

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has refused to give his opinion on the red card issued to Fernando Torres this afternoon.

The Spaniard had already scored in the game when referee Mike Dean handed him his marching orders for a foul on Mark Gower after 38 minutes.

Despite being visibly unhappy with the decision at the time, Villas-Boas has declined the opportunity to voice his opinion on the incident.

"The referee has to decide what to do according to the rules and he has decided," Villas-Boas told Sky Sports News.

"The referee's decision is the most important thing."

Torres will now receive a three-match suspension.
