AVB plans for life after football

My passion for football makes me live it very intensively over 11 months and dedicate myself to that, but I think life allows you to enjoy other things.

For me, there is a limit and, in the next five to 10 years, I will quit coaching.

To compete in the Dakar Rally is a lifetime ambition for me and is something I know I have to do.

“It went from a passion to an ­obligation, a destination of life, but I can only do it when I leave football. I will do it.

– Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas speaking to O Jogo
