AVB hits out at Spurs ‘lies’

Andre Villas-Boas has denied he is in talks with Tottenham to become the club’s next manager, describing reports linking him with the White Hart Lane outfit as ‘lies’.

Spurs parted company with Harry Redknapp last month despite the fact that he guided the club to fourth place in the Premier League last season, only missing out on Champions League qualification after Chelsea beat Bayern Munich in the competition’s final.

Villas-Boas has been installed as the favourite to take over at White Hart Lane, although reports earlier this week suggested the 34-year-old was having doubts because club chairman Daniel Levy had approached other candidates including Wigan’s Roberto Martinez and Fabio Capello.

Now though the former Chelsea boss, who left Stamford Bridge after a hugely unsuccessful eight month spell there, has refuted that he has been in contact with Tottenham whatsoever.

He was quoted as saying by Portuguese newspaper O Jogo: "There is nothing, it is all lies."

Spurs will continue their pursuit of a new manager to replace Redknapp, who was in charge of Spurs for three-and-a-half largely successful years.
