Villas-Boas was handed a three-year deal at Chelsea in 2011 with the task of revitalising an aging Chelsea squad but he was dismissed nine months later after a string of poor results as well as making the unpopular decision to leave veteran Frank Lampard on the bench.
His successor Roberto Di Matteo delivered the FA Cup and the Champions League for the Blues last season but even that did not suffice as the Italian was sacked in November to make way for current manager Rafa Benitez, who is the club's seventh manager since Jose Mourinho's departure in 2007.
Villas-Boas believes that managers at Chelsea were told by owner Roman Abramovich about a long-term vision but were ultimately judged on immediate results.
"There are no plans at Chelsea, it's results that rule." he told The Sun.
"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."
Villas-Boas added that he is happy with life at Tottenham.
He concluded: "We're achieving what we've been asked to achieve. We're still in the Europa League and third in the Premier League."
