AVB Happy At White Hart Lane

Andre Villas-Boas has raised his flag, and it has Tottenham’s logo upon it.

The Spurs boss was coveted by French champions PSG as they seek a replacement for Real Madrid crush Carlo Ancelotti.

The thought of managing superstars like Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as well as up-and-coming talents like Marco Verratti and Lucas Moura, must have appealed to AVB.

As must the lure of an immediate entry into the Champions League and an inexhaustible budget.

But AVB has long insisted that his preference is to stay at a single club for a number of seasons, after his tempestuous flings with Porto and Chelsea.

The Portuguese tactician has found a comfortable home at White Hart Lane, where he enjoys the challenge of helping Spurs punch above their weight, and where he believes his sporting ambition can be realised for now.

So despite the courtship of PSG, AVB has strenuously committed his future to Spurs, after they gave him his second chance to prove his mettle in the Premier League.

"I have had a friendship for some time with the president of PSG," Villas-Boas told A Bola.

"He is a friend and we speak regularly, but my commitment is with Tottenham.

"It was the club that allowed me to return to the Premier League and I feel good there."
