Andre Villas-Boas: I wish I could have repaid Tottenham fans’ faith
Andre Villas-Boas says he wishes he could have repaid Tottenham fans' faith with a trophy before his sacking
Andre Villas-Boas has spoken publicly for the first time since his sacking by Tottenham Hotspur, describing his time in England as a “great experience” and refusing to be drawn on where his next job may lie.
The 36-year-old was dismissed by the north London club after a year-and-a-half in charge following Spurs’ humiliating 5-0 home defeat by Liverpool earlier this month.
I wish that I could have responded to the confidence of the fans with a trophy
The former Porto and Chelsea boss intends to take some time out before deciding on his next club, and admitted that he was desperate to lead Spurs to a trophy this season before his sacking.
“I wish that I could have responded to the confidence of the fans with a trophy. I had great ambitions to win a trophy this season,” Villas-Boas told O Jogo.
“This is now a time of reflection for myself and my staff, and for re-positioning our careers. Nevertheless, England was a great experience.
“The most likely course of action is to wait for the end of the season before thinking of embracing a new project.”
