Speaking in the Journal du Dimanche, Marseille Sporting Director Andoni Zubizarreta was effusive with his praise for manager André Villas-Boas.
“In training, he speaks 4 languages. At press conferences, he does not look for excuses or controversies, he does not send subliminal messages to the board. And with me, our exchanges are natural, without anyone grappling for power. If we make a mistake, we make that mistake together. We are certainly more in sync… André knows where to put his feet. Off the pitch, he has enquired about the youth academy and marketing plans.”
