Andre Villas-Boas has turned down the opportunity to manage Sao Paulo, according to the Brazilian club which has fuelled speculation he is set to join Tottenham.
Sao Paulo’s director of football, Adalberto Baptista, has claimed an approach was made for Villas-Boas’ services which was rebuffed by the former Chelsea boss.
Baptista told Globo Esporte: “He today said that he doesn’t want to manage Sao Paulo. He prefers to have more time to plan things, but I have no time to wait.”
It’s a strange turn of events since AVB was quoted as describing the links with Tottenham as “lies” at the weekend. As we all know, nothing is ever simple at Spurs!
Spurs refused to comment when they were contacted by ESPN today – so maybe there is something in this one?
