Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas remains angry over the way he was treated by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich last season. Tottenham's Portuguese coach blames Chelsea's billionaire owner Abramovich for taking the easy option - rather than standing up to the dressing room.

AVB complained: "There are no plans at Chelsea, it's results that rule.

"There are times in football when it's easier to replace the coach.

"But when you embrace a project you believe in people. There was a commitment from Abramovich and his word was given.

"Yet there was a premature departure."
