As Tottenham were overturned by four goals at Anfield on Sunday, one Tottenham fan asked the question that many others must have been wondering: Can they bring back sacked manager Andre Villas-Boas?

Only Twitter user Owen Fitzgerald actually proposed the question to Zenit St. Petersburg's official Twitter account, the team Villas-Boas currently manages. 

Their response was swift and clear: no.
