Villas-Boas wants Porto stay

BY foxsports • May 11, 2011

The 33-year-old manager is earning a reputation throughout the continent after guiding Porto to their 25th domestic crown and securing a Europa League final against compatriots Braga. But despite rumours that he would leave in the summer, with Chelsea one of the mooted destinations, he has revealed he intends to remain at the Estadio Dragao. "My future, as you know, is completely linked to Porto," he said. "I do not know of any official interest from other clubs." Porto's president Pinto da Costa insisted his sought-after young manager was happy in his current job and even made a personal pledge to him. "Out of the thousands of times that he has been asked if he would be leaving for another club, he has always responded that he is in his dream position already," he said "We want to see you happy in this job for many years, and we will provide you with the conditions so that this season is the first of many with the success that we all want."
