Chelsea suffer by comparison to Tottenham Hotspur in comments by new White Hart Lane boss Andre Villas-Boas.
Speaking about how his new role is shaping up across London from where he left Stamford Bridge under a cloud, the Portu-geezer hailed Spurs – and simultaneously subtly slammed Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.
