Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly prepared to remove himself from the running to become the next Tottenham manager as Daniel Levy continues to pursue other candidates.
Reports on Wednesday claimed that Levy was ready offer Villas-Boas the opportunity to succeed Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane, after the latter was relieved of his duties last week.
However, according to The Guardian, Villas-Boas is unhappy that Levy is still considering other options, despite the Portuguese initially believing he was the No.1 target for the role.
Levy has already held lengthy discussions with Villas-Boas about replacing Redknapp and is said to be unimpressed that the Spurs chairman is courting rivals including Laurent Blanc and Roberto Martinez.
Villas-Boas has reportedly complained to associates that Spurs are speaking to 'ten other coaches' and the 34-year-old is now threatening to pull out of talks about moving to north London.
The former Porto manager has been out of work since leaving Chelsea in March, and has been linked with various positions as he attempts to re-establish himself.
