Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp has slated the original appointment of Andre Villas-Boas.

After AVB's departure, Redknapp questioned how he came to be installed at White Hart Lane after lasting just eight months at Chelsea.

He told Sky Sports: "After the job he did at Chelsea he was incredibly lucky to get that job in the first place.

"He had a nightmare at Chelsea and then they went and won the Champions League without him, but he finds himself as the manager of Tottenham with a squad of Modric, Bale and players like that.

"Last year he did well with the previous manager's team, but now he's had his chance to do it, it hasn't worked out for him.

"When you get beat 5-0 at home it's a bit of a tell-tale sign. It's not something Tottenham fans are accustomed to and I feel sorry to a certain extent for the fans.

"Having seen the team that was built - you look at Gareth Bale on the wing - and you've ended up with players who aren't in the same league."
