Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is impressed by Andre Villas-Boas' work at Tottenham.

Mourinho is backing former assistant Villas-Boas to qualify for the Champions League this term.

He told The Sun: "Tottenham has a fantastic squad, some brilliant players - some of the best in the Premier League.

"And now they have found consistency in their performances.

"I don't think they can be Champions, not this season but they will be top four for sure, top three maybe."
