AVB perturbed by Townsend call

Andre Villas-Boas is annoyed with Roy Hodgson for not consulting him over Andros Townsend's England call-up.

I was surprised (when he [Townsend] was called up)," the Tottenham manager said.

I would like to give you a little bit more information but the fact (is) that I wasn't contacted in any way or form by Roy Hodgson regarding the player call-up.

I would have preferred to give my opinion on the fact that he gets called up so soon.
