Tottenham eventually saw off their Norwegian counterparts with a 2-0 scoreline in the Europa League, after goals from Vlad Chiriches and Moussa Dembele, but Villas-Boas was subjected to chants over his position at White Hart Lane throughout the game.
29 year old Tromso fan Reidar Stenerson aimed chants at Villas-Boas regarding his potential departure, and was shocked to find himself ordered out of the ground by security after the Spurs boss complained about the verbal abuse. Stenerson spoke with Norwegian press about the situation, and despite being told he could return to the stadium - but at the other side of the field to Villas-Boas - Stenerson declined.
"I first sung after five minutes that he would be 'sacked in the morning' and he looked at me. At the half-time whistle, when it was still 0-0 and I started the same song, he pointed at me and suddenly the security came and threw me out.
"I know he is under a lot of pressure so I think my words hit him, even though I am only a little guy in little Tromso. He was being a bit petulant. This is the same thing that can be sung by 60,000 at the Emirates Stadium or other grounds."
The former Chelsea boss will hopefully feel more comfortable on Sunday as he returns to White Hart Lane to watch his Spurs side take on Manchester United, but with many Tottenham fans disgruntled with recent form, there's no guarantee that Villas-Boas won't be subjected to similar chants this weekend.
