AVB hits back at Hansen


Andre Villas-Boas' war of words with Alan Hansen has continued following the BBC pundit's latest swipe at Chelsea's defence.

Hansen's criticism of the Blues reached a new level last week during his analysis of their 2-1 Barclays Premier League win at Wolves. The former Liverpool captain claimed centre-half David Luiz "wouldn't know what a good position is if it was staring him in the face", adding of right-back Jose Bosingwa: "He is so bad it's embarrassing."

Villas-Boas launched a furious tirade against Hansen last month and his response to the Scot's latest jibes were more controlled but just as cutting. Villas-Boas said: "I really can't get myself involved with these people again. Alan doesn't have the privilege that I have, to work with these players every day."
