New Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas admits he made mistakes at former club Chelsea.
His attempt to move on from an established core of Blues players proved more difficult than he had hoped but he thinks he can do better as Harry Redknapp's successor as a result of those experiences.
"You always learn from experience," he told Sky Sports News.
"From my understanding the Chelsea experience was maybe not so gratifying in terms of success but very gratifying professionally for me.
"I learned a couple of things that maybe I've done wrong and I've learned in a club you have to trust the right people at the right time."
