Totenham boss Andre Villas-Boas insists Harry Redknapp is in no place to judge whether only a "dope" can manage Chelsea.

Shortly after taking over at QPR in November, Redknapp told a press conference before his team's game against Chelsea that only a "dope" could fail to succeed at the west London club with the riches and players on offer.

When asked what he thought of Redknapp's claims, Villas-Boas, who was fired by the Blues last season, replied: "Only if you manage a club you are going to find out. You have to be able to access a club like that to experience it. It's a different type of club. You just have to experience it and to survive it."
