Villas-Boas rubbishes sack reports
Manager Andre Villas-Boas insists that he retains the full backing of the Tottenham board and players despite the club's recent dip in form.
If he had read Wednesday morning's papers, Villas-Boas would have seen claims that his position is under threat following Sunday's 6-0 thrashing at Manchester City.
After a flurry of bets, one bookmaker made Villas-Boas odds-on favourite to become the next top-flight manager to lose his job, but the Portuguese is adamant his position is secure.
The former Chelsea manager, who spent almost Â£110million in the summer, admits the Spurs board aired their misgivings about the defeat at the Etihad Stadium to him in a meeting after the game.
But the Spurs boss bristled at suggestions he was on the verge of the sack at a tense press conference 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle.
"I have the confidence of the board. I have the confidence of my players and I have to move on to do a proper job," the Tottenham manager said.
