Former Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has received a fair bit of sympathy this week.
Since being sacked by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy on Monday, plenty have come forward and claimed the former Chelsea coach was harshly treated.
‘He deserved more time’, they said.
‘He wasn’t the one who chose the signings’, said others.
‘He needed more time to get all those new players to gel’, was a common opinion.
The overall feeling was that poor old AVB had been harshly sacked by both Chelsea and Tottenham in little under two years, and deserved everyone’s sympathy.
The former Porto man pocketed a whopping £12 million for failing to do his job properly at Chelsea, and pocketed a tidy £4.5 million from Tottenham for being let go after overseeing 6-0 and 5-0 defeats to rivals for the Champions League places.
No wonder AVB is still smiling.
