Villas-Boas aims jibe at Blues

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has aimed another jibe at former club Chelsea, claiming his Spurs players are a better group to work with.

Villas-Boas was sacked by the Blues in March amid rumours that top players in the dressing room had forced him out, and as Tottenham prepared for their pre-season friendly clash with Liverpool in Baltimore, Villas-Boas, who replaced Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane, was quick to praise his new squad.

Asked how he had been received by the Spurs players, Villas-Boas said: "It is a question you need to ask the players, but from my perspective I have been adapting to them. They are a great group who are enjoying what they are doing. You will get a more specific answer from the players, of course.

"I think the warmth of the group is excellent to see, and you know two different groups react differently, and we've seen that the spirit within this group has been fantastic - it's different from what I had in the last year."

Villas-Boas also said that Spurs had done nothing wrong with regards to Gareth Bale's Olympic absence.

Bale has not taken part in Team GB's campaign due to injury, but he has appeared for Spurs in a pre-season friendly. FIFA president Sepp Blatter said this week that the player could be banned were a complaint made, though the FA has no intention of doing so.

"I can understand the frustration for missing a player of Gareth's dimensions involved with Team GB, but everything was done as it should be," Villas-Boas said. "It was approved by the FA doctors regarding his injury, so for me it is the end of story.

"[Blatter] has decided to speak, maybe not knowing the full extent of the situation. They are unfortunate comments, but I can't make any more comment because he is the FIFA president."
