Villas-Boas vows not to repeat Chelsea mistakes at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas has promised he will not repeat the mistakes he made at Chelsea in his new post at White Hart Lane, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Villas-Boas was hired by Blues owner Roman Abramovich in June 2011, only to be sacked in March 2012 after a disappointing run of form in the Premier League led to doubts over Chelsea’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League. Villas-Boas has since admitted he made a number of errors in his brief time at Stamford Bridge, ones which he insists he has learned from.

The Portuguese was accused of trying to change too much too soon at Chelsea, including dropping or selling the club’s senior players, in particular Frank Lampard, while Nicolas Anelka was transferred in January. Villas-Boas revealed that he does wish to make changes at Tottenham, but that he would not be so hasty this time.

There are changes that have to be made but I think that I won’t promote that change as aggressively as I did at Chelsea,” Villas-Boas said.
