“Arsenal’s unbeaten season is bigger than Chelsea’s Champions League win” – AVB

Posted: October 19, 2012 in Sports

Tottenham Hotspurs’ home game against Chelsea tomorrow afternoon, will be more than just another London derby. It will be the first time that Andre Villas-Boas, will come face to face with the club where he tried to make his reputation in England, and failed woefully.

What made it worse, is that his then assistant, Roberto Di Matteo, which is now the permanent manager of the club, went on to win the double that included the UEFA Champions League.

But the former Porto boss, says he is not impressed by the conquest of Europe, insisting that going unbeaten in the league is a superior achievement.

“Winning any league is extremely difficult but going through it unbeaten is also extremely difficult,” he said. “The achievement that Arsenal did [in 2003-04] was remarkable and outstanding and probably won’t be repeated in the modern game as it happened in Porto with me.

“There were games where we lived on the limit and certainly Arsenal did the same. It will be something extremely difficult to go past.”

Villas-Boas, who took up the reins at White Hart Lane this summer, was then asked ourightly which was more difficult to win. His response was: “Remaining unbeaten in the league.”
