It is official everyone! Andre Villas-Boas is now our manager for the next three years!
Andre was previously at Porto and led them to an undefeated season in the Portuguese league, and under his guidance won four trophies and became the youngest manager ever to win a European title in the process.
Our chairman, Daniel Levy commented on the 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.”
Andre Villas-Boas, speaking as the new Head Coach, 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. I have had several discussions with the Chairman and the Board and I share their vision for the future progress of the Club. This is a squad any coach would love to work with and together I believe we can bring success in the seasons ahead.” Andre also brings with him two members of his coaching staff – First Team fitness coach Jose Mario Rocha and Daniel Sousa, head of opposition scouting.
Daniel Levy further continued: “We are constantly looking to move the Club forward. It is important that we now look to develop the potential within the squads at all levels, whilst strengthening the First Team in the summer in key positions with players who will become part of the future success of the Club.”
We at Cyprus Spurs Supporters Club wish Andre all the best, because he has inherited the best squad. Let us hope he can take us to the next level and beyond! We will as we always do get behind him and the players because that is what being a Spurs Fan is about! So here’s to looking forward to the new and exciting season!!
Come on you Spurs!!
