Andre Villas-Boas And Tottenham Talks Stallby Jack Kitson / 21 June 2012, 10:15Tweet
Andre Villas-Boas is believed to have been in talks with Tottenham Hotspur about the prospect of becoming their new manager since Friday. However, despite being the odds-on favourite in the Next Tottenham Manager Betting, media reports have today revealed that the former Chelsea boss is growing increasingly frustrated with the club as they continue to be linked with the likes of Laurent Blanc and Roberto Martinez. Chairman Daniel Levy is supposedly keeping his options open, and as a result AVB is threatening to pull out of negotiations.
AVB has been out of work since he was sacked by Chelsea in March. He is believed to be keen to get a deal sorted with the North London club but the fact that they are approaching other managers is putting him off. Other names in the mix are believed to include France manager Laurent Blanc, Wigan boss Roberto Martinez and former Schalke boss Ralf Ragnick, with Levy determined to make the right appointment.
Whoever ends up replacing Harry Redknapp at Tottenham has a tricky start to the new Premier League season, with a trip to Newcastle on August 18th. He will also be expected to lead Spurs to a to a top four finish and Champions League qualification, which is no easy task. At the moment Stan James have Spurs priced at 33/1 to win the title, 7/4 to finish in the top four, 10/1 to lift the FA Cup, while they are one of the favourites to experience success in the Europa League.
