The rows and fallouts that cost Villas-Boas his job as Tottenham boss

The writing was on the wall for Andre Villas-Boas the second he walked out of a brief but tetchy meeting with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and technical director Franco Baldini following Sunday’s humiliating 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool.

Levy and Baldini turned to each other and knew that Villas-Boas’ time as Tottenham’s head coach was up, that he had lost the heart for the fight and the ideas to improve on disappointing league performances.

His relationship with the board had already deteriorated to the point where he was no longer expected to manage the north London club beyond the season - and this was the endgame.
After speaking to owner Joe Lewis and the rest of the board members, the decision was made. Levy met with Villas-Boas after the Portuguese arrived at the club’s state-of-the-art Enfield training base on Monday morning and dismissed the 36-year-old.
