Villas-Boas excited for Spurs future
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has spoken of the ‘absolute honour’ to be manager at White Hart Lane and is excited to achieve good things this coming season.
Villas-Boas, who was sacked as Chelsea manager in February, has found his feet quite quickly and has been given a second chance at the Premier League. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy parted company with Harry Redknapp this summer and quickly moved to appoint the 34 year old, despite his lack of success at Stamford Bridge. Levy expects Villas-Boas to continue the good work from last season’s top four finish and the feelings are mutual, as the Portuguese boss is hoping to build a legacy in North London.
The new Spurs manager told the official club website: “Tottenham is a team of great tradition and one of teams that, at this moment, is aiming towards even more success. The distance we have to take to reach success is very short, thankfully because of the work that has been done in the past. That is important as we build up solidly. We want to mix titles, winning ambitions and winning habits into Tottenham.”
With the club in the process of completing building work on a £45m training complex in Enfield, Villas-Boas is excited about the pre-season ahead and wants one of the major steps of the season to include nurturing the potential of a talented group of youngsters at White Hart Lane.
Villas-Boas added: “We get to a top level in terms of facilities and in the end, it’s the right step towards putting everything available for our players and our Academy, so we can nurture and make their potential to flourish even more. This is one of the major steps for the season.”
