Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is confident his new project can succeed at White Hart Lane with the full backing of chairman Daniel Levy.
The 34-year-old Portuguese coach came to Stamford Bridge last summer full of ambitions to take the Blues forwards. However, he was sacked by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich just eight months into the job, with his team outside the top four of the Barclays Premier League.
Villas-Boas, however, has no doubts his fresh relationship with Levy will allow their plans to take Tottenham forwards flourish, and he said: "I met the chairman, and saw the way he goes about his business at the club. He knows what he is doing, approaching the market in a different way, is a person of great football understanding and he had the effect of giving me the assurances I wanted in terms of building something."
