Andre Villas-Boas dismisses Barcelona speculation

Published 1 Comments

Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova stepped down from his role due to health issues at the end of last week. 

The day when it was announced, media persons gathered around the town to make the shortlist for the managerial vacancy. 

On top of their wishlist was a certain Portuguese tactician who won the treble at Porto a few years back.

The same manager was purchased by Chelsea as hot property and put him in charge of changing the old guard, before the end of season they bid farewell to him in an unfair manner.

The young manager, who once worked as a chief scout for one of the most illustrious managers in this era, didn't bow down. 

He went to Brazil on a scouting mission instead of enjoying the holidays! And his dedication and love for football was recognised by a team with high ambitions, as they roped him in before the start of the new season.

One year into his new role with Tottenham Hotspur, Andre Villas-Boas got his critics silent. 

He won the fans over after a difficult start with results which showed his tactical acumen and some brilliant displays.

In Gareth Bale, AVB developed a world class player who became the best in the Premier League. 

AVB built his team around Bale's strength's and the duo is prospering into one of the finest player manager combinations in the world. 

Even a world record bid isn't deemed enough to prize the welshman away from Villas-Boas's clutches. Such is their understanding, proximity and their togetherness.

Even Villas-Boas had his admirers from a very rich club in France, he turned them down in a gentleman's way and is looking forward to reaping the rewards for the hardwork done at White Hart Lane.

But the media wasn't done there. Even though they failed to unsettle Bale at Spurs with constant rumours of Real Madrid and Manchester United, they are trying their luck with Villas-Boas to Barcelona now!

Some media outlets have suggested there is a clause which makes AVB eligible to leave for Camp Nou, for a buyout clause of 14million euros! 

Is it time for the Spurs officials to do a Mario Balotelli? Why always me!

The young Portugese manager is a class above the rest. He shut the mouth of people coming up with baseless rumours in the best way possible. 

"It's a difficult situation, At this time, all my wishes are with Tito. 

"If he has to resign over illness, it's not the time to speak about speculation. We're speaking about a person's health, it's not even a question," said Villas-Boas.

AVB also utilised this chance to make the club's intentions clear about Bale.

"No offers, no, Bale is not for sale at any price," he told SkySports.
