Villas-Boas set to be appointed by Tottenham
Andre Villas-Boas is expected to be appointed the new Tottenham Hotspur manager on Tuesday, the Daily Mail has reported, with the newspaper adding the former Chelsea boss has promised Daniel Levy he has learnt from the mistakes he made at Stamford Bridge.
Villas-Boas was hired by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich a year ago to replace Carlo Ancelotti, having previously won the Europa League and Portuguese title with Porto. But Villas-Boas was sacked by Abramovich in March with Chelsea lying fifth in the Premier League table and on the brink of elimination from the Champions League, a competition they eventually won under Roberto di Matteo, Villas-Boas’ successor.
The 34-year-old is said to have vowed to Spurs chairman Levy that the errors that led to unhappiness over his methods from a number of Chelsea’s senior players will not be repeated at White Hart Lane. The Mail puts the value of Villas-Boas’ Tottenham contract at £16m.
