Andre Villas-Boas is has a month to save his job as Tottenham boss after crunch talks with the club’s board, according to the Evening Standard.
The former Chelsea boss has just seven games to prove he is the man to take the club forward, after discussions with the club’s hierarchy who have become concerned with recent performances and results.
Potential transfer targets were also discussed, but that has been left in the hands of Sporting Director Franco Baldini, as it remains unclear as to whether AVB will be the man tasked with spending the club’s money in January.
The good news for the Tottenham boss is that the festive fixture list appears favourable, with five out of seven games at home, and Liverpool the only top four side they must face.
Tottenham came from behind to pick up a crucial 2-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage in midweek.
That result provided Villas-Boas with his first Premier League win since October, with November proving a nightmare month.
The recent 6-0 defeat to Manchester City proved the low point, and was a result that bought Villas-Boas’s future into question.
The Tottenham board and supporters believe the £110million spent on new players in the summer should have Tottenham higher in the table and playing more attractive football.
Villas-Boas has just a month to reach both those targets, or face the prospect of the sack in the New Year.
