LONDON: Andre Villas-Boas (pic) has been named as Tottenham new manager on a three-year deal.
Villas-Boas, 34, was axed by Chelsea last March after a disappointing run of results left the Blues out of the Premier League title race and battling for Champions League survival.
"He has an outstanding reputation for his technical knowledge of the game and for creating well-organised teams capable of playing football in an attractive and attacking style," said Levy.
"Andre shares our long-term ambitions and ethos of developing players and nurturing young talent, and he will be able to do so now at a new world class training center.”
Villas-Boas brings with him Jose Mario Rocha as first team fitness coach and Daniel Sousa as head of opposition scouting.
"We are constantly looking to move the club forward," said Levy.
"It is important that we now look to develop the potential within the squads at all levels, whilst strengthening the first team in the summer in key positions with players who will become part of the future success of the club.”
