O Jogo scoop AVB’s 1st interview since his Tottenham sacking, rules out moves to Benfica or Sporting [Picture]
- December 26, 2013
Portuguese paper O Jogo have scooped an exclusive on Boxing Day, getting the first interview with Andre Villas-Boas after he was sacked from his post at Tottenham.
AVB said that his time at Tottenham was a “great experience”, while the Portuguese coach also spoke about his thoughts for the next stage in his career.
The former Spurs and Chelsea manager told O Jogo:
The most likely course of action is to wait for the end of the season before thinking of embracing a new project. Now is a time of reflection for me and for my coaching staff, and repositioning of our careers. England was a great experience for us and a great professional development.
Obviously we are aware that we could and should have achieved better sporting results at Tottenham… I wish I had reciprocated the confidence of supporters with a trophy. We had great ambitions to win a trophy this season.
When directly asked about his departure from White Hart Lane, AVB politely declined to elaborate: “I would rather not talk about it.”
Moving onto his future Villas-Boas admitted that FC Porto remain close to his heart and the coach refused to rule out the possibility of somehow returning to the Dragons. AVB did however categorically shut the door on suggestions that he could take over the reigns at either Benfica or Sporting Lisbon, calling such rumours “impossible”.
