“I have great respect for the club and for Daniel [Levy] and these are the reasons the couple of clubs that came knocking I told them that I wasn’t interested,” the Spurs boss told reporters.

“[It is] my first opportunity to start a second year in the same club. I think that can give me an advantage and is something I want to try.

AVB guided Spurs to a fifth place finish in his first season at White Hart Lane and was close to beating Arsenal to fourth place, only for the Gunners to pip them on the final day of the season.
