The young Portuguese coach is facing the sack after just 12 top-flight games this season, with Tottenham languishing down in ninth place in the standings, eight points behind leaders and arch-rivals Arsenal.

Meanwhile, last Sunday’s 6-0 mauling at the hands of Manchester City in the Premier League at Eastlands has now left Villas-Boas on the brink, with the 36-year-old said to have just two matches to save his job, starting in Tromso in the Uefa Europa League on Thursday night, and then against champions Manchester United at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

And defeat in either of those two fixtures will result in the end for AVB, with Spurs technical director Franco Baldini said to be lining up a move for former FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Spain midfield player Enrique to take on the role.

Baldini was responsible for bringing Enrique to the Stadio Olimpico in 2011, although the 43-year-old lasted just one season in the Italian capital before being sacked by AS Roma.
