Moutinho flattered by one of Europe’s best

by Matthew Harris on September 13, 2012

Tottenham transfer target Joao Moutinho remained tight lipped about the deal that nearly happened on summer deadline day but he was complimentary about Tottenham and the man currently in charge of team affairs at White Hart Lane.

Moutinho played under Andre Villas-Boas at Porto and he feels that his former coach is one of Europe’s best.

“Tottenham is not in my head now, although I was flattered by the interest, especially by the coach. Andre Villas-Boas is one of the best coaches in Europe today.”

Predictably however, the midfielder wouldn’t be drawn on the prospect of Spurs coming back in after Christmas,

“The transfer window is closed but now I am focused on Porto and prefer not to talk about something which may or may not happen,” he added.

“Porto is a club which offers maximum stability to help me show my best level.

“I cannot talk about anything else until that changes.”

The quotes might tell us very little but if there is that much respect for the coach, maybe the deal could be a formality when the window opens again.

i think AVB is probably one of the best coaches ln europe but going onto i believe Daniel Levy intensionly left the selling of modric late so we would not be able to buy joao moutinho in time its so obvious we made millions for the business men of this club.
