AVB: England Was A Great Experience

 Andre Villas-Boas has rued his failure in charge of Tottenham Hotspurs and has dropped a huge hint that his next job will not be in England.

The Portuguese manager was let go after less than nine months at Chelsea and then had a chance to rebuild his reputation at Tottenham, but he was sacked last week following a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

"I wish I could have responded to the confidence shown by the fans with a trophy," Villas-Boas told Portuguese newspaper O Jogo.

"I had great ambitions to win a trophy this season."

AVB then suggested that he would not be looking for another job in the Premier League after being replaced by managerial novice Tim Sherwood.

"This is a time of reflection for me and my staff, and for repositioning of our careers," he said.

"Nevertheless, England was a great experience," the former Porto boss concluded.
