Andre Villas-Boas's managerial techniques have been seriously called into question after it was alleged by Jermaine Jenas that he banned Tottenham players from using the gym during his time in charge.
The Portuguese coach took over at White Hart Lane from Harry Redknapp in the summer of 2012 but lasted only until a 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool in December 2013 - just a few months after selling Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

In his first season, Villas-Boas led Spurs to a record points total in the Premier League era but Jenas, who played under the former Chelsea and Porto manager, was absolutely miffed by some of his ideas, particularly when it came to gym work.
Speaking in his role as a pundit on BBC Radio 5Live on Friday night, Jenas elaborated, saying: "A lot of the players wasn't happy with how he did things at times, but I think a lot of it was down to that kind of respect element and having an understanding of where he came from.
"At Chelsea, he was pretty much the tactical guy, who was going around handing out DVDs on players and stats on the players you were coming up against.

"I think that spell he had at Chelsea enabled him that when he came to Spurs, we all automatically was like (sic) 'well this is an ex-Chelsea manager, let's see what he's got to say without shooting him down because he hasn't played the game'.
"He didn't allow players to go in the gym, which just baffled me."
So, lets get this straight - he wouldn't allow professional footballers to go into the gym and workout? We have absolutely no idea why it didn't work out for Andre in the Premier League - no idea at all!
