Fmr. Chelsea and Tottenham Coach, AVB quits football for this Job!

Former Chelsea manager Andre Villa-Boas is quitting his current management role at Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG to become a rally driver. Yes, you really did read that correctly.

Having struggled during his time managing in the Premier League and after exiling himself to the Chinese Super League we really did not foresee ourselves writing about the Portuguese manager anytime soon. The only way he could become news worthy again would be if he was to pull an absolutely wild stunt such as quitting football to become a rally drive competing in South America. And, that – is just what he has done.

A report from the Sun has stated that Villas-Boas will go on to compete in the Dakar rally, driving a Toyota Hilux. The event will take place in January next year and will go through countries such as Peru, Argentina and Bolivia.

Former Chelsea manager Andre Villa-Boas is quitting his current management role to become a rally driver.

The football manager (or should we say ‘former’ football manager) was once tipped to become one of the greatest new stars of the managing world in football.

When signing to take over the Chelsea job in 2011 many compared Villas-Boas to his compatriot Jose Mourinho. Having come from a successful spell at Porto before arriving at Stamford Bridge just like Mourinho, many could not ignore the similarities.

However, unlike Mourinho the spell at Chelsea was not at all successful for Villas-Boas with the Portuguese manager leaving the club before even completing a whole season.

The manager did go on to take a job at Tottenham just after but also struggled and in December, 2013 Villas-Boas departed the North London club after just over a season at the helm for Spurs.

Villas-Boas has struggled to establish himself as a top manager in the past eight years and we just hope for his sake he’s far better at taking care of a car than a football club.

Heavy Defection hits APC

Barring any change, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may be hit by mass defection, in the next few months.

Daily Sun gathered that some APC governors, senators and members of the House of Representatives are seriously dissatisfied with events in the ruling party.

Some of them are said to have cut a deal with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with a view to joining the opposition political party.

This is coming at a time the PDP has declared that its platform was open to all Nigerians to actualise their dreams of contesting elections.

But reacting, National Publicity of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, told Daily Sun that the party won’t want to react to such information when no name of any governor or chieftain was mentioned.

However, competent sources among those who attended the PDP’s recent National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Asaba, Delta State capital, revealed that top APC members, who will defect may join the PDP latest by May.
