Paulinho: Villas-Boas was key to Tottenham move

Paulinho says that he moved to Tottenham because it was 'the right move' for his career and revealed his admiration of Andre Villas-Boas.

The Brazilian cites the Portuguese manager as a key part in his decision to move to London with Tottenham.

"I looked at the other offers but came to the conclusion that Tottenham would be the right one for me because of the team, because of the environment and the league and also the other players who I would be playing alongside,” Paulinho explains.

"That was the most important thing. To start with a win. The main aim for me and for the other players at Tottenham is to really aim for titles this season. Tottenham is a big club and we have great players here so we should be aiming for the top.”

Paulinho says that the fact Villas-Boas spoke Portuguese was not the deciding factor in his move to Spurs.

"This is an obvious advantage,” he says. “But I didn’t come to Tottenham for this. I came because of the stature of the club, and the great coach that Villas-Boas is.”
