Andre Villas-Boas believes he is entitled to some degree of satisfaction for helping set Chelsea on the way to Champions League glory, but is now fully focused on transforming Tottenham into genuine title contenders.
The 34-year-old was sacked just eight months into his Stamford Bridge 'project' by Blues owner Roman Abramovich in March, with the team outside the top four of the Barclays Premier League. Under the guidance of Roberto Di Matteo, Chelsea went on to win both the FA Cup and then becomes kings of Europe following a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Bayern Munich.
Villas-Boas insists there were some positives from his short tenure, and is determined to learn more at Spurs after taking over from Harry Redknapp. Speaking at Spurs' new multi-million pound training venue at Enfield, he said: "For Chelsea to have won the FA Cup and the Champions League, it means we were still present in those competitions at that time [of sacking]."
