Andre Villas-Boas: Remains ambitious

Former Chelsea and Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas insists he is not finished with English football and he will return in the future.

The 36-year-old has endured a rough time in England since joining Chelsea form Porto in 2011.

He left Stamford Bridge after less than a year, but soon arrived at Tottenham. His spell in charge at White Hart Lane was brought to an end 18 months after taking over.

But despite his troubles, Villas-Boas does not rule out working in England again.

"It is not the right time now because the season is almost finishing, but in June I'll start once again, fresh, and in another country," he said.

"For the English Premier League, I won't be working there next year, but hopefully it can happen in the future."

His ambition has seemingly not dimmed and he still hopes one day that he could even coach the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Portugal.

"Barcelona and Real Madrid are two of the best teams in the world. I am a young coach and it would be a dream to train either Madrid or Barcelona," he told Marca.

"I would like to get to know other leagues and I have had offers from various teams. From around next June I am sure I will be managing again.

"I am a young manager, but of course I would like to coach the Portuguese national team one day too."

Villas-Boas is delighted to see Gareth Bale performing so well for Real, after helping oversee his development at Tottenham before his big move.

"Gareth Bale is having a really good season. He knows he is facing one of the biggest challenges of his career," he said.

"Signing for Madrid was his decision because he had lots of offers. Bale wanted to sign for the team with the most titles. He always wanted to go to Madrid."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
