The Portuguese boss will take charge of Spurs
Tottenham have announced that Andre Villas-Boas will be the new head coach of the north London club, after they sacked former manager Harry Redknapp last month.
The Portuguese boss endured a difficult spell at Chelsea and was sacked in less than a year, winning 19 of his 40 games.
The 34-year-old also had a wonderful spell at Porto, winning 45 of his 51 games and only lost twice.
“Tottenham Hotspur is a great club with a strong tradition and fantastic support, both at home and throughout the world,” Villas-Boas said.
“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.”
