Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he is good friends with Paris Saint-German president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, but has also insisted that he has no intentions of leaving Spurs for Parc des Princes, according to The Daily Mail.

The big spending French club were keen to install Villas-Boas as the replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, who has departed the club and looks set to manage Real Madrid.

When asked about his link with PSG, the Portuguese said: “I have had a friendship for some time with the president of PSG. He is a friend, (we) speak regularly but my commitment is with Tottenham.

“It was the club that allowed me to return to the Premier League and I feel good there.”

It is believed that the Frenchmen offered AvB a three-year contract to take the reins following discussions with his agent, but Villas-Boas was keen to show loyalty to Spurs who gave him a job following his disappointing spell in charge of Chelsea.

They have since installed Laurent Blanc as manager on a 12 month rolling contract.

The 35-year-old also spoke about something he is particularly looking forward to next season – going toe to toe with former mentor Jose Mourinho when Spurs meet the Special One’s new club, and Villas-Boas’ former, Chelsea.

He said: “It will be special to play against Chelsea, particularly against a person who was instrumental in my career. It will be great to meet Mourinho.”
