AVB UNDER PRESSURE
Tottenham’s under fire coach Andre Villas-Boas has been the target of criticism after they got thrashed with shocking 6-0 defeat against Manchester City. Much of that critic arrived from the former chairman of Tottenham Alan Sugar who sold the club some years ago.
When asked about the recent criticism he received from supporters as they booed his substitution of Aaron Lennon and about Alan Sugar.
Villas-Boas said: “It is their [the fans’] team, their passion and they don't trade it for anything else, not like Alan Sugar who trades it for money.”
Alan Sugar bashed at Villas-Boas tactics and said that he would like Sir.Alex Ferguson to be in charge of the club, in a radio interview this past week.
Sugar said that he “did not understand” Villas-Boas’ tactics and that he hoped his “good friend” Ferguson could be tempted back into management by Spurs.
The MLS side Toronto has been linked with Jermain Defoe and now reports are emerging suggesting the 31 years old forward that the transfer will be announced later in this month which is expected to be done when the transfer window opens in January.
Jermain Defoe’s season has taken a blow as he is being used as a substitute player behind the Spanish forward Roberto Soldado who seems to be the preferred option for Villas-Boas. Adebayor is also expected to make his move away from Tottenham in January so there is little doubt that the Premier League team is going to be active in the next transfer window trying to find fresh legs and someone that can form a good enough partnership that can help them make a title charge.
Villas-Boas defended his current situation with Tottenham by stating how he had reached the League Cup quarter-finals and the last 32 of the Europa League.
