Andre Villas-Boas never doubted he would turn around Tottenham's season after their poor start.
Many were shocked this summer when Spurs chairman Daniel Levy sacked Harry Redknapp and replaced him with Villas-Boas, who had just endured a torrid eight-month spell in charge of Chelsea. Villas-Boas' critics were given further ammunition when the 34-year-old's team failed to win any of their opening three games.
But the Portuguese has turned around the club's fortunes in recent weeks, winning three straight league games, and he said: "I have never doubted my abilities, I always trusted them. It's funny how things change so dramatically."
