Former Blues boss rejects report of imminent White Hart Lane appointment.
Andre Villas-Boas has rejected recent reports linking him with the vacant manager’s job at Tottenham Hotspur as ‘lies’.
The former Chelsea boss is the odds-on favourite to be appointed at White Hart Lane following the shock departure of Harry Redknapp earlier this month.
Widespread reports suggested that the Portuguese was the leading choice of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy as the north London club look to secure regular UEFA Champions League football.
But there had been suggestions that Villas-Boas was unhappy at the way in which Spurs were considering other candidates, despite previously indicating he could be interested in the role.
And the former Porto boss left little area for doubt when asked about the Tottenham speculation by the Portuguese press.
He was quoted as saying by Portuguese newspaper O Jogo: “There is nothing, it is all lies.”

So does that mean that Andre Villas-Boas doesn’t want the job or just that he hasn’t been the subject of an official approach by the North London club? We are confused.
Presumably Villa-Boas would jump at the chance of a return to management following his all too brief reign at Stamford Bridge. Or perhaps the Portuguese boss is looking to secure a job abroad? Daniel Levy must look to appoint a new boss sooner rather than later or risk the chance that his top performers get picked off by interested parties looking to take advantage of the lack of a manager at the White Hart Lane helm.
Villas-Boas is still the big favourites with the bookies to take over from Harry Redknapp with the likes of Laurent Blanc, David Moyes and Jurgen Klinsmann also linked with the post.
