Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is confident he has the backing of his players.

The London Evening Standard says AVB met with board members this week to discuss the club's situation.

Villas-Boas is said to be pleased with the support he has received from the squad and it appears the situation is different from Chelsea, where he was sacked after falling out with some of the senior players.
