Andre Villas-Boas: Expecting Jose Mourinho to be a star attraction in 2013/14

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas expects all eyes to be on his former mentor Jose Mourinho next season following his return to Chelsea.

Mourinho is back in English football, and back at Stamford Bridge, after five years away with Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

He has been charged with reproducing his previous success in west London, with his arrival at Chelsea in 2004 providing the spark for two Premier League title successes and five major trophies.

Villas-Boas - who worked alongside his fellow Portuguese at Porto, Chelsea and Inter - is convinced Mourinho will be a star attraction next term.

He feels his presence can only be beneficial to a club that will be hoping to keep Spurs outside of the top four in 2013/14, with Mourinho a manager who knows what it takes to win and how to get the best out of those at his disposal.

Villas-Boas said: "It won't be possible to take your eyes away from Mourinho.

"One of his characteristics - and I don't say it in a negative way - is to deviate attentions, positive and negative, in such a way that the team is only worried about winning."

Meanwhile, Villas-Boas is also looking forward to seeing how quickly another top-flight boss to have accepted a new post this summer settles in new surroundings, with David Moyes needing to hit the ground running at Old Trafford if Manchester United are to retain the fear factor established during Sir Alex Ferguson's reign.

Villas-Boas added: "The fear that came from playing Alex Ferguson's sides made everything harder and that may still continue if adaptation is fast.

"That is something that I am curious to see."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
