New Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas feels Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich "quit on me" after deciding to call a premature end to their Stamford Bridge project last season.

The 34-year-old was sacked just eight months into his former post in March, when the Blues were outside the top four of the Barclays Premier League.

The Portuguese coach would not go into specifics, but maintains he was let down by the Blues billionaire Russian owner, saying: "I respect the decision of the owner of Chelsea, but I will never accept it."
