Lythell: Chelsea's ex factor

AVB has full faith in Kyle Walker

Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas says he has full faith in England defender Kyle Walker despite the recent revelations that he inhaled nitrous oxide, and he stressed that the player has taken responsibility for his actions.

Villas-Boas also questioned the timing of the reports, which appeared ahead of England’s vital World Cup qualifier in Ukraine, which ended in a 0-0 draw.

“I spoke with Kyle Walker before the story came out because the incident was a long time ago,” Villas-Boas said. “The timing of choice for this news to be released is something that surprises me, but it's an editorial choice.

“The player has assumed the responsibility of having failed to set an example, which I think is something that is honourable, but you wouldn't expect him to do it again. He accepted the responsibility of having failed as a role model towards young people and I don't think we will see the incident again.

“Regarding the timings for the news to be released, I think it was a surprise for everybody, but in the end it's an editorial choice.

“I spoke to him. I think he has assured me of what he has [said] also publicly. He has assured me before the news came out anyway. He seems in the right state of mind. He told me he was in the right state of mind for England as well, so I see no issue there.”

Villas-Boas also backed his club’s stance on the ongoing controversy over supporter use of the term ‘Yid’. While the FA has warned that any fan using the word could face criminal charges, Tottenham released a statement arguing that the club has adopted the phrase as a “defence mechanism” against anti-Semitic abuse.

“I'm not the person to respond with the right meaning,” Villas-Boas said. “The club has issued a statement that is strong and shows intent to co-operate with the FA regarding the use of the word.

“It's understandable our fans don't use it in a negative way. It's something they chant with pride and it's very difficult to differentiate the wrong and the right of what they do. Because of that the FA has come out with a statement of intent. The club are showing signs of co-operation. It's a sensible situation for Spurs fans, but I'm pretty sure they don't use it in a negative way.”

Meanwhile, Villas-Boas stated that Emmanuel Adebayor has been given compassionate leave to stay in Togo due until Monday due to the death of his brother, but revealed that the forward has not been training with the first-team squad as his future looks uncertain.

“At the moment he's not with us,” Villas-Boas said. “We have granted him authorisation to stay until Monday in his country for personal reasons. He won't be involved against Norwich. Up until when I find it appropriate, he will train with the development team.”
