Villas Boas Regrets Turning Down PSG
Villas-Boas spent just over a year at Spurs, finishing fifth in 2012-13, inspired by the brilliant displays of Gareth Bale.
Bale joined Real Madrid after the conclusion of the campaign, for a then-world record £86 million, and Spurs struggled thereafter.
However, he claims that PSG were interested in securing his services prior to his downfall in north London.
“The first season was magnificent in all aspects. We had a ‘short’ squad in terms of depth, but a great spirit and so much will,” he told A Bola.
“We picked up the most points in Spurs’ history with an incredible Bale who played behind Adebayor where he was free to move, but also with Lennon and Walker who allowed us to have a good counter-attacking 4-4-2.
“I got an offer from Paris Saint-Germain, who wanted me, but I said no out of love for Tottenham. Maybe that was a mistake.”
