There are mixed news stories regarding Andre Villas-Boas today depending on which newspaper or website you happen to read. In certain parts of the press, suggestions are being made that his appointment as Spurs manager is imminent while others claim that the Portuguese is about to rule himself out of the running.
AVB’s problem seems to be the fact that Spurs are alleged to still be looking at other candidates having spoken to him first. According to ‘sources’ he wants to know that he is wanted by the club as their first choice but that he is receiving mixed messages.
From a reporting point of view, it would actually be very welcome if an announcement were made as soon as possible. A potential reason for further delay could involve managers who have their minds on other things – Blanc at Euro 2012 for example.
While a definite appointment may still take some time, if you believe the stories than we will know the decision relating to AVB very shortly.
