The manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Andre Villas-Boas, has said that he will finish his managerial career inside the next 10 years as he has a strong desire to take part in Dakar Rally.
This is really a shocking statement as Boas is only 35 years of age at the moment. He has managed only a few clubs in his career so far, but, he has been rated very highly in England. The football pundits say that he has the capability to become one of the best managers of all times.
Boas had joined Tottenham Hotspur at the start of the last season after having a dreadful run with Chelsea. At White Hart Lane, Boas made his mark in the very first season. He guided the team to the 5th position in the Premier League.
The Spurs just got beaten by the Gunners as far as the Champions League qualification is concerned, but, they played impressive football throughout the season and a lot of credit for that goes to Boas.
When asked how long he will continue managing teams, Boas said, “I will retire inside the next 10 years. I believe that everything has a limit. If you do things beyond limit, it’s not good.”
“I am passionate about participating in the Dakar Rally. I have to do it at some point of time in my life and I can do that only if I end my managerial career.”
“I have no idea how much success I will achieve as a racer, but, one thing I know for sure is that my career isn’t going to last long.”
When asked about the reports of Gareth Bale’s transfer, Boas said, “I want to make it clear that Gareth is not leaving the club. He hasn’t been put on sale. I have been clearly told by the chairman not to accept any bids for Gareth.”
