Andre Villas-Boas – Profile on Manager
At the age of 16, Villas-Boas (who was always a Porto supporter) lived in the same apartment block as the Englishman Bobby Robson, who was managing FC Porto at the time. Following a debate between the two, Robson appointed Villas-Boas to Porto’s observation department.
- Club record for the most matches across all competitions unbeaten.
- Most wins in Europe in one season by a Portuguese club.
- Most consecutive wins in the Portuguese league.
- Biggest margin over the second placed team in the league (21 points).
- While at Porto he became the youngest manager to win a European club title (aged 33).
- AVB became the youngest person to gain the FA’s coaching qualification.
- His €15 million (£13.3 million) move from Porto to Chelsea is the most expensive ever by a manager.
“People focus a lot on the work of the manager and I don’t see it that way. I don’t see myself as a one-man show. Football isn’t won by one person but by collective competence. It is the quality of the players and the structure of the club.”“This is not a one-man show. This is a question of creating empathy and motivations and ambitions.”“It’s not just a question of me taking on Sir Alex, it’s a top club like Chelsea challenging for the title”
