Andre Villas-Boas has criticised Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, claiming that the businessman is an “expert in sacking managers.”

The Portuguese manager lasted just 17 months at White Hart Lane, losing his job after 80 games which saw 44 wins, 20 draws and 16 losses.

He is currently unemployed after leaving his position at Russian side Zenit Saint Petersburg and there’s clearly not any love lost between himself and Levy.

“Daniel Levy is an expert in sacking managers,” said Villas-Boas, as quoted by the Mirror. “There’s no time for long term projects in the Premier League.”

Villas-Boas, 38, has already had an illustrious career as a manager at an early age.

He has won two league titles with both Porto and Zenit, while also winning the Europa League with the Portuguese side.

However, in the Premier League it hasn’t worked out for the manager, having also lost his job in charge of Chelsea before his spell with Spurs.

Current manager Mauricio Pochettino is the fifth Tottenham boss since Martin Jol left the job in 2007.

In that time Juande Ramos and Tim Sherwood have lasted under a year.

However, under the Argentine manager the north London club have finished in third place, while also returning to this campaign’s Champions League.
