Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy believes Andre Villas-Boas is the perfect man to take the north London side forward.

The former Chelsea manager was named successor to Harry Redknapp on Tuesday, penning a three-year contract to become head coach at White Hart Lane. Villas-Boas has been charged with ensuring Tottenham qualify for the Champions League next season and Levy believes the Portuguese is ready for the task.

"I am delighted that Andre has agreed to become our new head coach," he told the club's official website, "He has an outstanding reputation for his technical knowledge of the game and for creating well-organised teams capable of playing football in an attractive and attacking style."
