What next for Andre Villas Boas?

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 18 December 2013, 16:29

Andre Villas BoasAndre Villas-Boas’ sacking by Tottenham Hotspur on Monday outraged some, while others were less than surprised at his departure following a humiliating 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool. The Portuguese coach must now decide what step to take next in order to resurrect a managerial career that has taken a battering in England.

At 36 years of age he is still an extremely young boss, but one who has already experienced the highs and devastating lows of the modern game. A break from football seems the most sensible option, although he may opt to thrust himself straight back into the dugout in a bid to get his career back on track.

A return to the Premier League seems unlikely at this moment in time considering he has been sacked twice in the space of 22 months. An appointment at one of the top teams is out of question but a mid-table side may be a decent option for the Portuguese coach. With that in mind Swansea could be worth keeping an eye on as their manager Michael Laudrup is currently being linked with the Tottenham vacancy, with AVB now priced at 12/1 with Bet Victor to succeed the Dane at the Liberty Stadium.

A return to his homeland could be on the cards. AVB burst into the spotlight with Porto in 2010, winning a league, domestic cup and Europa League treble in 2010/11. The all conquering outfit achieved this feat in pulsating style through employing a brand of attractive, attacking football, much to the delight of their fans. Alternatively AVB may fancy a fresh challenge in Spain, Italy or France.

It is worth pointing out that AVB did in fact lead Spurs to a record Premier League points haul last season, with the north London club amassing 72 points. However, in the eyes of many this otherwise impressive feat wasn’t held in high regard as Spurs agonisingly missed out on a top-4 finish by a single point. What made this heartache so much more painful was that it was fierce rivals Arsenal who snatched the final Champions League place.

Meanwhile it is still unknown what say AVB had in which players came in during the summer. It is a somewhat blurry topic due to the influence of technical director Franco Baldini who has seemingly escaped scott-free for his part in the summer trading. However, AVB still failed to get the pricey signings to gel, with Erik Lamela in particular a high-profile failure. Furthermore he was obviously absolutely gutted to have lost star asset Gareth Bale, who enjoyed a phenomenal 2012/13 season.
