Tottenham boss Villas-Boas: Prozone stats are USELESS

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has branded Prozone stats as USELESS!

AVB has sensationally revealed that he does not use Prozone to monitor his players' performances and physical conditions.

He said: "I don't use it because I don't believe in it. Sometimes certain tasks might not achieve specific physical data that rewards premium efficiency in terms of a physical performance.

"You have to be careful with statistics. I have never used Prozone and I know people will be surprised by that. Sometimes you get a tag and you can't get rid of it.

"Of course we have a scientific department but we don't prepare our training or players based on the physical data we get from matches. The mind and how the player feels is much more important for us rather than statistical data.

"It depends from coach to coach and we all have different approaches.

"But for me, these stats are useless."
