Tottenham boss doubts title chances
Andre Villas-Boas has played down his new-look Tottenham side’s chances of winning the Premier League title this season.
As SkySports reports, Villas-Boas has expresses his delight with his summer signings, but asserts there is not guarantee of instant impact.
Tottenham were the largest spenders this summer window, spending close to £105m on seven new players.
“The investment that we have made raises expectations in people but what we have to do is create a team that bonds together.” SkySports reports AVB as saying.
“That takes time and we see that our opponents are one step ahead as they have players who have been together for many years; that is an advantage that we don’t have.
“I think we have invested a lot in young players that have real potential. Obviously we will have to work with them to make sure they develop into the world stars that we think they can become.” He added.
Spurs are very much a team in transition and have still yet to score from open play.
Nevertheless, Villas-Boas’ men have won two out of three so far, and have only conceded once.
The Portuguese boss, however, admitted that despite all the positives Spurs’ loss to fierce rivals Arsenal was a bitter pill to swallow.
“I’m happy with the start we have made, but losing to Arsenal is never easy for any Spurs fan so now we have to make sure we bounce back,” he said.
Spurs and AVB will be hoping to address their poor scoring record this weekend when they host Norwich City.
