Defoe full of praise for Villas-Boas' Tottenham approach

Jermain Defoe has praised the impact made by new Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas ahead of the Premier League fixture with Villas-Boas’ former employers Chelsea, Sporting Life has reported.


Jermain Defoe and Andre Villas-Boas


Villas-Boas replaced Harry Redknapp in the White Hart Lane dugout over the summer having been sacked by Chelsea in March when it appeared the Blues were not going to qualify for the Champions League.


Ironically, Tottenham finished fourth under Redknapp, a position that usually delivers a place in the competition, but Spurs were denied entry when Villas-Boas’ replacement at Stamford Bridge, Roberto Di Matteo, guided Chelsea to victory in the Champions League itself and with it, the last qualification place in this year’s tournament.


Tottenham made a slow start to life under Villas-Boas but have recovered in recent weeks and Defoe laid the credit for the club’s recent good form squarely at the feet of the Portuguese.


The England striker said: “The manager has been great with all the players. If you speak to any of the boys, they will say he has been fantastic. Every player knows their jobs and he has been brilliant.
