Andre Villas-Boas insists he did not feel under pressure to grab a first Tottenham Hotspur win, the BBC
Two goals from Jermain Defoe and one from Gareth Bale gave Tottenham a 3-1 victory over newly-promoted Reading at the Madejski Stadium, with Royals’ substitute Hal Robson-Kanu pulling one back for the home side.
There had been speculation in the weekend’s Press that Villas-Boas was facing the sack if Tottenham did not win any of their next three games, starting with the Reading fixture, but Villas-Boas revealed he was never made to fear for his position by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
He said: “I talk to the chairman every day. I didn’t feel under any pressure at all…We managed to mix the result and the performance and come out of Reading very satisfied”
Previously, Spurs had suffered a defeat and two draws in their three Premier League matches this season, losing away at Newcastle United on the opening day of the campaign and recording consecutive home 1-1 draws with West Bromwich Albion and Norwich City.
