Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech isn't surprised to see former manager Andre Villas-Boas back in the Premier League.

AVB has sealed a swift return to English football with London rivals Tottenham.

Asked if it was a surprise to see Villas-Boas back, Cech told The Independent: "No, because Andre showed he is a great manager before he came to us, that is why the club brought him in.

"We were doing the right things on the training ground but we were not able to transfer this into games.

"It became an issue because we were not able to find the reasons for that, but I believe he will have a different story with Spurs."
