The Portuguese manager previously coached Chelsea and Tottenham, but the current Marseille boss has no desire to work in English football again

Former Chelsea and Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas says he does not want to work in the Premier League again because the style of football is not suited to his philosophy.

Portuguese manager Villas-Boas is currently working in Ligue 1 with Marseille, having had two spells in English football earlier in his career.

While Villas-Boas admires the English top flight, describing it as the best in the world right now, he feels that his attitude towards the game does not fit in when it comes to Premier League football.

Speaking to Portuguese radio station Radio Renascenca, Villas-Boas said: “I will not go back there. It is the championship with the most investment, the best players and teams. But, I like being in a league that includes different game philosophy. This is not the case in England.

Villas-Boas was appointed Chelsea boss in July 2011, having guided Porto to the treble of Portuguese league and cup, plus the Europa League, in his first full season as a manager.
