The new Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is adamant that he is not looking for revenger on Chelsea, who sacked him midway through last season, but the players themselves should be looking to right the wrongs that Chelsea caused them last season.
Villas-Boas said: “There is one thing which has been to a certain extent blown out of proportion – this is certainly not a personal matter,” “I feel this is much more about Tottenham to its extent, in that it is the team who took this club out of the Champions League; this is the team who prevented this team from playing in the FA Cup final last year.
“I prefer to involve it much more on the club, taking it to an individual situation is not fair on me. First because it means absolutely nothing on end of season and in which position you might finish at the end of the season, and because it is not a quest of an individual, it is a quest of a team, where we want to finish at end of the season.”
I am sure everyone in the Tottenham team and their fans would love to get revenge, and it will be pointed out that Spurs are unbeaten in their last seven home games. I would just like to re-iterate that Spurs last defeat at White Hart Lane Lane was as long ago as last April, but the winners that day were Chelsea by 5 goals to 1. Good luck on that one AVB……
