''MY UNBEATEN SEASON WITH PORTO IS A BIGGER ACHIEVEMENT THAN CHELSEA'S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WIN'' - VILLAS BOAS
Tottenham manager, Andre Villas-Boas has boasted that his unbeaten season with Portuguese club Porto is a bigger achievement than Chelsea’s Miracle of Munich in the Champions League.
Villas Boas, fired by Chelsea last March, took Porto to their 25th Primeira Liga title unbeaten in 2010-11.
They won the treble, including domestic cup and Europa League, and did not lose in 30 league matches.
Asked what is the bigger achievement between winning the Champions League or going through the season without losing.Villas-Boas said: ‘Remaining unbeaten in the league.’
The Portuguese coach continued, ‘Winning any league is extremely difficult but going through it unbeaten is also extremely difficult.
‘Arsenal’s achievement in 2004 was remarkable and outstanding. Like Porto in 2011, it probably won’t be repeated in the modern game.
