Andre-Villas Boas has been confirmed as Tottenham's new head coach.
The 34-year-old's appointment marks his return to the Barclays Premier League just four months after his departure from Chelsea, where he was sacked eight months into a three-year contract. Villas-Boas will be hoping to rebuild his reputation at Spurs after succeeding Harry Redknapp, who left the post last month after four years at the helm.
A post on the club's official Twitter account read: "The club is delighted to announce Andre Villas-Boas as head coach."
Villas-Boas has penned a three-year deal at White Hart Lane and brings with him two members of his coaching staff in the form of first-team fitness coach Jose Mario Rocha and Daniel Sousa, head of opposition scouting.
"Tottenham Hotspur is a great club with a strong tradition and fantastic support, both at home and throughout the world," Villas-Boas told the club's official website, www.tottenhamhotspur.com.
"I feel privileged to be its coach. For me, this is one of the most exciting coaching positions in the Premier League."
The announcement ends weeks of speculation following Redknapp's departure and chairman Daniel Levy believes Villas-Boas is the right choice for the club.
"I am delighted that Andre has agreed to become our new head coach," he said.
"He has an outstanding reputation for his technical knowledge of the game and for creating well-organised teams capable of playing football in an attractive and attacking style.
"Andre shares our long-term ambitions and ethos of developing players and nurturing young talent, and he will be able to do so now at a new world class training centre."
