Spurs boss AVB insists no grudge against Chelsea's Lampard

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has no problem with Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

Lampard is seen as part of the players clique which made it so difficult for AVB to succeed at Chelsea last season.

But Villas-Boas holds no grudge against Lampard, who has since scored his 201st goal for the club and moved within one of Chelsea's all-time record.

"It's something he's chased in recent years as an individual objective and being so close means a lot to him," said Villas-Boas. "It's difficult to see another midfielder ever scoring 200 goals. Frank has the instinct of a striker and his timing is perfect."
