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