Tottenham Hotspur have denied former manager Andre Villas-Boas’s claims that the club broke the promises made to him.

Tottenham Hotspur have insisted that the club broke no promises made to former manager Andre Villas-Boas.

In a statement to PA Sport, a club sportsperson said: "It's unfortunate that Andre has felt the need to pass comments like these. Not only has he attempted to rewrite history, he has clearly forgotten the facts."

Spurs are clearly not happy with Villas-Boas’s accusation that he was not given the support he was promised during his time at White Hart Lane.

The Portuguese, who was the manager of the North London outfit from July 2012 to December 2013, was quoted as saying that club chairman Daniel Levy broke promises in relation to signings.

“The chairman proposed a challenge to increase Tottenham's competitive level, but immediately [Luka] Modric left and we didn't get any of the targets I had identified, such as Joao Moutinho, Willian, Oscar or Leandro Damiao,” said the 37-year-old.

"These were promises that were not kept. I had a group of players I had not chosen. In two years I lost [Rafael] van der Vaart, Modric, [Gareth] Bale, and all the promises made were unfulfilled.

”In any event I don't look at my time at Tottenham as a negative experience. It was an experience I needed to have.”

Villas-Boas is currently in charge of Russian outfit Zenit Saint Petersburg.
