Former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas: No rush to return


Midseason, Tottenham Hotspur parted ways with manager Andre Villas-Boas. The club had grown tired of waiting for their large transfer spending spree to pay off on the pitch in the English Premier League. Villas-Boas isn’t in a rush to return and said he won’t take the first job offered to him. He wants to take a break and wait for the right job to open up for him.

“I have decided to take a break. I want to learn a bit and refresh my batteries, but I can’t imagine a life without football,” Villas-Boas said, via Sky Sports.

“I have learnt that it (the next job) has to fit 100 per cent, and the club has to value the coach.”

In his spare time he’s dropped in Bayern Munich’s winter training camp in Qatar to see how Pep Guardiola does things.

“His legacy is already huge. He is highly valued by every coach in the world. It is an honour for me to look over his shoulder,” Villas-Boas added.

“He has changed football. The way it should be played. He has opened the world’s eyes. If you look how the top teams in Europe are playing, you see the inspiration he gave with Barcelona.”
