Mourinho & Villas-Boas prepare for battle

Andre Villas-Boas pulled no punches in the assessment of his broken relationship with Jose Mourinho during his press conference on Thursday.

The two managers will meet on Saturday as Tottenham host Chelsea at White Hart Lane but Villas-Boas admits the bond he had with his opposite number during his time at Stamford Bridge, Porto and Inter has faded.

"We had a great personal and professional relationship before, that we don't have now,"said Villas-Boas.

"I don't think we need explanations on friendship and personal relationships. But our relationship broke down.

"I think we have the mutual respect for each other and we understand what we have been through cannot just disappear but it's not like it was before. I don't lose any sleep [over it]."
