Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has insisted he has no regrets over ending his "outstanding" working relationship with Jose Mourinho.

Villas-Boas was part of Mourinho's backroom team for seven years working as a scout for his Portuguese compatriot at Porto Inter Milan and Chelsea.

But Mourinho refused to elevate Villas-Boas to a more senior position at Inter and the 35-year-old decided to go out on his own and enjoyed success as Porto boss before going on to manage Chelsea and Tottenham.

The pair will be in opposing dugouts for the first time this Saturday as Mourinho takes his side to White Hart Lane and Villas-Boas is adamant he made the right choice to part company with his mentor.
