The Tottenham Hotspurs appointed Andre Villas-Boas as its new manager according to Goal. Villas-Boas and the Spurs signed a contract for three years with the former starting within the next Premier League season.
Villas-Boas replaced Harry Redknapp who was removed by Spurs chairman David Levy secondary to the clubs performance in the UEFA Champions League. The second reason was that Redknapp paid more attention to the possibility of being England's coach during Euro 2012 than to his job.
Villa-Boas had previous experience with Academica, Porto, and Chelsea before accepting the Spurs job. Regardless, experience may not help him in his new job.
According to an article written by Adam Shergold of The Daily Mail, Villas-Boas must be able to receive the support of the squad and the fans by delivering immediate results or victories. Villas-Boas must also find a way to trade Lukas Modric for another player.
The possibilities of signing Oscar (from Brazil) of Daniel Sturridge (from Chelsea) and Gonzalo Higuain (from Real Madrid) to replace Modric could be examined. The area of defense, offense, and strikes should be reinforced.
While Mr. Shergold wrote about Alan Dzagoev (from CSKA Moscow) signing with the Spurs, I think the Spurs can use another player for defense. The reason is that Dzagoev would be better playing for CSKA Moscow and preparing for his role in Russia.
I agree with Mr. Shergold in the need for Villas-Boas to pay more attention to the players and fans instead of excess technical data about the club. At least the two should be balanced since the managerial job is also people oriented as well.
It remains to be seen whether Villas-Boas is up to the Spurs job. I am willing to predict that Villas-Boas will last at least half of the Premier League season and at most until the end of it.
