AVB: Next job will not be in England

Andre Villas-Boas has revealed his next job will not be in England.

The 36-year-old was sacked as Tottenham boss last month after 18 months in charge.

He lasted less than a season in his previous post at Chelsea and claimed managers in England were no longer given enough time to make an impact.

Asked if he could rule out England as his next destination, the Portuguese told talkSPORT: "Yeah, most likely, I think so. I had some great professional experiences in England with two of the greatest clubs in the world and I enjoyed my time there, but in reality I couldn't achieve the success I wanted and I feel I'm in another place right now."

He added: "England is a great country full of very open-minded people. But the reality is it (football) is a results driven business and you have to achieve that immediately because the world is about the next second.

"Unfortunately in England we are losing that era we had with the likes of Arsene Wenger of giving stability to managers. It's not just related to clubs, but also to society. What is new is what is best.

"People expect change immediately and no time is given and when that is the case you can't really judge people."

Villas-Boas revealed he would not take another post until June.

He said: "I will stop until June. It's the right time to refresh myself and for me and my staff to discuss the next step.

"It's important to take the next step carefully and choose well. We have had some contact already and I'm sure something good will happen for us.

"We have to look for a club with ambition to win trophies. I'm not too selective about what country (I work in next). I'm open-minded to understanding what clubs want to achieve."
