Yesterday, Villas-Boas was asked if he'll take Rafa Benitez's lead and have a pop at Fergie.
"I have the utmost respect for Sir Alex," Villas-Boas said.
"I'm not a confrontational guy."
He added: "It's not just a question of me taking on Sir Alex or the other Premier League managers.
"It's a question of a top club like Chelsea challenging for the title again.
"Last year, we ended on a very good run to threaten for the title in the last couple of games.
"I want us to be up there at the beginning."
