It’s official – Andre Villas-Boas appointed Spurs new Head Coach
Tottenham Hotspurs, amidst a lot of speculations, have finally announced Andre Villas-Boas as the new Head Coach of the club on Tuesday.
The 34-year old Portuguese manager had initially shown interest in the vacant position, after previous manager Harry Redknapp was sacked, last month. After a lot of meetings and discussions, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy finally announced Villas-Boas as the new Head Coach of the club.
Daniel showed a lot of excitement at his new appointment and said, “I am delighted that Andre has agreed to become our new Head Coach. He has an outstanding reputation for his technical knowledge of the game and for creating well-organised teams capable of playing football in an attractive and attacking style. Andre shares our long-term ambitions and ethos of developing players and nurturing young talent, and he will be able to do so now at a new world class Training Centre.”
The former Chelsea manager was sacked by club boss Roman Abramovich and was without a job for a few months. Heaving a sigh of happy relief, Andre said, “Tottenham Hotspur is a great club with a strong tradition and fantastic support, both at home and throughout the world. I feel privileged to be its coach. For me, this is one of the most exciting coaching positions in the Premier League.”
Andre Villas-Boas is the youngest manager in football history to win a European title. He lead Porto, his last club to an undefeated season winning the league with four trophies.
