Andre Villas-Boas: Everything You Need to Know About Spurs' New Manager

After reportedly threatening to walk away from the Tottenham head coaching gig due to Spurs talking with "10 other managers" Andre Villas-Boas is the new man in charge at White Hart Lane.

In just eight days on the job, Villas-Boas has led Tottenham's charge into the summer transfer window, signing Icelandic wonderkid Gylfi Sigurdsson and then former Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen.

They both represent a departure from the last few years of strategy that saw Spurs merely dip their toes into the pool of transfer windows, opting rather for a dependence on squeezing the last little bit out of veterans and training up the best prospects in their youth system.

But who is Andre Villas-Boas? Is he a spoiled little kid who's been handed toys he doesn't deserve? Or is he the most humble of prodigal sons, returning to London, a few miles away from the fanbase that ran him out of town less than six months ago?

Join me as I take you through everything you need to know about Harry Redknapp's replacement—Andre Villas-Boas.
