Villas-Boas says he learned from his experience at Stamford Bridge last season.
He said: âI feel like a different manager and a different person.
âI think Iâve improved a lot as a manager. Every person learns from their mistakes and you try to improve on those mistakes.
âYour man-management, your preparation for the game and your training sessions, everything is experience.â
Villas-Boas insists he is not motivated to finish above Chelsea by revenge. He said: âI donât see it that way but obviously it would be excellent because it would mean we have qualified for the Champions League.
âI think the fact that we achieve it as a club means much more to the fans.â
