Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is happy for Steve Clarke over his success at West Bromwich Albion.

Having been alongside Clarke at Stamford Bridge for three years as part of Jose Mourinho's backroom staff, Villas-Boas is glad to see his former colleague doing well.

"He is an excellent person," Villas-Boas said. "I have nothing bad to say about Steve.

"It is fantastic to see him doing well. It has been a great learning experience and a great opportunity at West Brom.

"We had a excellent relationship. I am not sure what captivates Steve is the same as captivates me."
