AVB: Easier managing Spurs than Chelsea

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas admits there's less pressure at White Hart Lane than managing Chelsea.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas admits there's less pressure at White Hart Lane than managing Chelsea.

Rafa Benitez was subjected to the latest in a series of barrackings on Wednesday night from the home support as Chelsea lost 2-0 to Swansea in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final.

Villas-Boas admits he feels under far less pressure at Spurs, who currently sit one place above the Blues in the Barclays Premier League.

"I was booed. It's a consequence of the demands of the job," Villas-Boas said.

"Chelsea is a high-profile club where media attention is high and everything is scrutinised and it's a different type of environment.

"This is a high-profile club but with different circumstances, different players, and different objectives and not so much media attention.

"Through the years Chelsea have had eight or nine managers.

"This club has found a little bit more stability in management recently."
