Tottenham boss Villas-Boas admits to rift with Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas has admitted he and his Real Madrid counterpart Jose Mourinho are no longer on speaking terms, the Daily Telegraph has reported, despite Villas-Boas working closely with Mourinho for some time.

The pair were together at Chelsea and Inter with Mourinho the manager and Villas-Boas the chief scout, but the relationship came to an abrupt end when Villas-Boas left Mourinho’s employ to begin his own career as a senior Coach, taking a position with Portuguese side Acadimica in 2009.

Luka Modric’s transfer from Tottenham to Madrid has brought the disagreement between Villas-Boas and Mourinho back into the open, potentially exacerbated by the accompaniment of the deal for Modric with the establishment of a partnership between the two clubs. While it is not yet clear what form the agreement will take, the frosty relations between Villas-Boas and Mourinho have caused a great deal of speculation.

The Telegraph adds that Villas-Boas was indifferent when asked about the partnership between the clubs, stressing that it was between Madrid and Tottenham rather than himself and Mourinho, and revealing that not only have the two not spoken in some time, but that he does not have his former mentor’s phone number either.
