Villas-Boas to take Spurs forward

Published Add your comment

Andre Villas-Boas is "privileged" to become Tottenham head coach and foresees a bright future for the north Londoners.

Weeks of speculation were ended on Tuesday when the Portuguese was named as successor to Harry Redknapp, who left White Hart Lane last month. Villas-Boas has penned a deal until 2015 with Spurs, where the 34-year-old will be hoping to make a bigger and better impact than he did during his ill-fated spell with Chelsea.

"Tottenham Hotspur is a great club with a strong tradition and fantastic support, both at home and throughout the world," Villas-Boas told the club's official website. "I feel privileged to be its coach. For me, this is one of the most exciting coaching positions in the Premier League."
