Tottenham could be set for up to 3 weeks without the striker Jermain Defoe after the striker was injured in the recent match against West Brom during the weekend. The manager Andre Villas-Boas confirmed that the striker's injury is serious than initially thought, while he has also said that the decision not to sign a striker in January might prove to be costly for the club.
The Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has hailed the managerial careers of the former Barcelona manager Guardiola and the Real Madrid manager José Mourinho.
These two people have had a lot of influence on his career according to Andre Villas-Boas. The Portuguese has been trying to adopt a style that is similar to the one used by Guardiola at the Camp Nou. Even though he did not have the greatest successes at Chelsea, Villas-Boas has been able to work on a different level at Tottenham. He has been able to get the club once again back into the top four positions this season.
The Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has said that the top four position still remains within reach for the Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, against whom he will be coming up in the midweek action.
Tottenham Hotspur has defeated Aston Villa in a Premier League match played at the White Hart Lane on Sunday. Tottenham won the match by 2-0. This was the fourth victory for Tottenham in the ongoing Premier league.
With this victory, Tottenham has now moved up to no. 5 in the points table with 14 points. Andre Villas Boas’ team has played 7 matches in the tournament so far. Out of those 7 matches, the Spurs have won 4, lost 1 and the remaining 2 ended in a draw.
Tottenham are unlikely to offer the same £ 24 million for the Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho in the January transfer window according to a close source at Tottenham. The club became extremely close to securing the services of the FC Porto midfielder after agreeing a £ 22 million fee with the Portuguese club.
However, the deal could not be completed in time after the London club failed to agree personal terms with the player. There have been rumours that the Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas will make Joao Moutinho his first priority when the transfer window reopens in January.
Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul has said that he has spoken with his international team mate and the Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris about the possibility of moving to the Premier league with Tottenham in the future.
The Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is regarded as one of the most talented goalkeeper some world and he is expected to complete a move to a major club this summer or in the next summer. However, it looks like he will be sealing a move to Tottenham after it has emerged that the Tottenham defender Kaboul has spoken with the goalkeeper about life at Tottenham.
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has said that he wants to sign a new contract with the club and is ready to talk with the board regarding an extension. The former Portsmouth manager has only one year left on his current deal, with Tottenham yet to offer him a new contract.
Manchester City's on loan striker Emmanuel Adebayor has said that he is extremely keen to stay in London with Tottenham next season.
Emmanuel Adebayor joined Tottenham on a loan deal till the end of the season. He has proven to be a massive hit with the club after getting them to the top four finish once again.
On the surface Tottenham seem to be a likable team, with a likable manager, likable fans and a proud history. This is however not the case. They are not everyone’s second team, they have not somehow become the best side in London and they are not a likable club.
