Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is happy seeing Brendan Rodgers succeeding with Liverpool.

AVB is convinced both he and Rodgers will do well at their respective clubs because of the time they spent together under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

"I met Brendan on a coaching course," the 35-year-old said.

"I did not know we would cross paths again, but we did in 2004 when he was at Chelsea as a youth team coach.

"It has happened differently for both of us but we have both been lucky that we have been able to work with a top manager which has enabled us to strengthen our knowledge and use that experience.

"He is in a position where he deserves to be in with a bright future."
