Andre Villas-Boas hopes to return to management next season...at Real Madrid or Barcelona
Portuguese manager was sacked by Tottenham in December
Sacked by Chelsea, sacked by Tottenham Hotspur, but Andre Villas-Boas has revealed he will return to management in the summer - and has identified Spanish giants Barcelona as his chosen destination.
The Portuguese, who won the treble with Porto in 2011, was dismissed by Spurs in December, and in his previous managerial job only lasted 40 matches before being given the boot by Chelsea in March 2012, but has set his sights on either Barca, or fellow La Liga challengers Real Madrid.
"Barcelona and Real Madrid are two of the best teams in the world. I am a young coach and it would be a dream to train either Madrid or Barcelona," he said.
"I would like to get to know other leagues and I have had offers from various teams. From around next June I am sure I will be managing again."
According to a Spanish publication, Sport.es, Villas-Boas is one of the candidates to replace Tata Martino as Barca coach next season.
