Andre Villas-Boas will not go down in Tottenham Hotspur history as one of their great managers; in fact most fans tend to poke fun at the Portuguese coach.
On paper, though, it is rather odd that the fanbase have such a disliking for the 40-year-old given that under his leadership the team set a then-club record of 72 points in the Premier League during the 2012-13 campaign.
Things started to go downhill in the following season after Gareth Bale was sold to Real Madrid and Spurs spent the money on array of new faces rather than a statement signing.
Villas-Boas lasted until December 2013 before he was given his marching orders, and since then, the former Chelsea coach has been in charge of Zenit St Petersburg and Shanghai SIPG.

Surprisingly, the Portuguese coach switched focus to motorsport last year, but there are rumblings that he plans to return to football.
Real Madrid are looking for a new manager following Zinedine Zidane’s departure, and according to RMC Sport, Los Blancos have made contact with Villas-Boas regarding his availability.
The report claims that the ex-Premier League boss is being considered due to his relationship with Gareth Bale, who soared for Spurs under Villas-Boas before departing for the Bernabeu.
The majority of Tottenham fans are not taking the reports too seriously; in fact they have been left tickled by them.
They also want Tim Sherwood in as Technical Director for the bantz.

They say you get promoted to your level of incompetence. In this case, maybe a few levels above even that.
