It was known that the heavy defeat suffered against Liverpool was going to cause some stir in Tottenham fans, but this was completely unexpected.

Per reports, the London-based club has decided to part ways with their manager André Villas-Boas as they were unable to perform against the top teams in the Premier League, something that ultimately caused the chairman to end the contract with him.

This marks another heavy failure in the Portuguese’s record and some are already thinking if he has what it takes to coach at the next level. Following a successful stint with FC Porto, AVB has sounding failures managing Chelsea and now Tottenham and it seems like he’s not well suited to manage in the EPL.

Villas-Boas had previously signed a five-year deal with the Spurs after arriving in June 2012 and the board put a lot of hope in what the team could do this year following Gareth Bale’s transfer to Real Madrid, but it seems like he was never able to assemble a good team without the Welshman.

As for Tottenham, things are now very complicated. Despite having a very good squad – particularly in the offensive side of the ball – it remains to be seen who will take the lead on a team that’s bumped in terms of morale. It clearly must be someone who knows the EPL and that has experience managing top teams as the team can’t allow to keep failing if they want to take the next step for good.

The team is currently in seventh place in the Premier League standings with 28 points, eight behind current league leaders Arsenal.
