AVB melts down after Man City defeat: If OM had money Pep would be here - but you have AVB!

Olympique Marseille coach Andre Villas-Boas has hit out at his critics after their Champions League defeat to Manchester City.

AVB was questioned in the aftermath over his tactical approach to the game.

But he snapped back: "You talk about systems, high blocks, low blocks. All because I have this frank report with you. But all the same it is not necessary to abuse.

"City is City! They spent a billion in 5 years. It's a team that plays very well, which has a coach who is a phenomenon, who always plays with possession of the ball with Bayern, Barcelona, City.

"Unfortunately, Marseille doesn't have the money to bring Guardiola here. If you have Guardiola here one day, you can have Marseille which will have precisely that. But hey, unfortunately you have AVB with his tactics. He is trying to do the best possible for the team."
