Villas-Boas dismisses Tottenham rumours

Former Chelsea coach Andre Villas-Boas has denied holding talks with Premier League side Tottenham over the vacant managerial position.

The Portuguese has been out of a job since March after his sacking from the Blues, and with Spurs parting ways with Harry Redknapp earlier in June, reports suggested that chairman Daniel Levy had considered the 34-year-old to take over at White Hart Lane.

Nevertheless, Villas-Boas has dismissed any links with the club, telling Portuguese newspaper O Jogo that he has heard nothing from the Spurs hierarchy.

“There is nothing, it is all lies,” Villas-Boas was quoted as saying by the paper.

Despite winning the Portuguese Liga Sagres and Europa League with Porto in 2010-11, Villas-Boas endured a tough time in his first season in English football as Chelsea struggled for form in all competitions.

He was subsequently relieved of his duties in March amid reports of a player revolt following the Champions League defeat to Napoli, and his reputation was tarnished further when his replacement, Roberto Di Matteo, steered the club through the tie and on to glory in Munich.

Meanwhile, Tottenham, who finished the season in fourth but missed out on Europe’s premier club competition due to Chelsea’s victory, are rumoured to be courting David Moyes or Roberto Martinez for the role.
