AVB dedicates Spurs win to Parkes' son

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas dedicated victory over Newcastle United to goalkeeper coach Tony Parkes' son.

Villas-Boas sported a T-shirt at his post-match press conference which read 'Get Well Soon Joe', a message to the son of goalkeeping coach Tony Parkes, who was involved in a car crash this week, and dedicated the win to him.

"It was a great individual performance and it was outstanding to see a player enjoying his football. Gareth is, whatever position he plays," he said.

"Great teams are made of great individuals too and Gareth is decisive. I am happy for him and this is a win we want to dedicate to Tony Parkes and Joe his son, as Joe tries to hang on to his life."
