Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has mocked Zenit St Petersburg’s decision to appoint ex-Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas as their new manager. The Russian outfit handed the 36-year-old a two-year contract to succeed Italian Luciano Spalletti, who was sacked last week. Villas-Boas was dismissed by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy in the wake of a 5-0 home loss at the hands of title-chasing Liverpool before Christmas. It was his second unhappy ending to life in London, having lost his job at Chelsea following less than a year at the Stamford Bridge helm. Entrepreneur and television personality Sugar, who ended his 16-year association with Tottenham in 2007 after selling his remaining shares in the club, was not a fan of the Portugese and does not expect him to be successful at Zenit. He said on Twitter: “At Spurs he spoke double Dutch, maybe he will talk about Faberge eggs in his post-match interviews.”Read more Tottenham Hotspur transfer news.
