Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he is good friends with Paris Saint-German president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, but has also insisted that he has no intentions of leaving Spurs for Parc des Princes, according to The
The big spending French club were keen to install Villas-Boas as the replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, who has departed the club and looks set to manage Real Madrid.
When asked about his link with PSG, the Portuguese said: “I have had a friendship for some time with the president of PSG. He is a friend, (we) speak regularly but my commitment is with Tottenham.
“It was the club that allowed me to return to the Premier League and I feel good there.”
It is believed that the Frenchmen offered AvB a three-year contract to take the reins following discussions with his agent, but Villas-Boas was keen to show loyalty to Spurs who gave him a job following his disappointing spell in charge of Chelsea.
They have since installed Laurent Blanc as manager on a 12 month rolling contract.
The 35-year-old also spoke about something he is particularly looking forward to next season – going toe to toe with former mentor Jose Mourinho when Spurs meet the Special One’s new club, and Villas-Boas’ former, Chelsea.
He said: “It will be special to play against Chelsea, particularly against a person who was instrumental in my career. It will be great to meet Mourinho.”
