The Portuguese has enjoyed a successful first year in charge at White Hart Lane, with Spurs going into the final day of the Premier League campaign still chasing a top-four finish.

But Villas-Boas has explained that he is keen to receive further help as he attempts to build toward the 2013-14 season.

"We have been outlining the route ahead for what we want to do in terms of the club structure," he said.
"Hopefully (there will be) the arrival of somebody else in the structure for the recruitment side, a technical director. It is a position I am used to working with and ideally it is someone that will help us to move forward.

"It's not fundamental, but it will help the club moving forward. It's something that I am used to working with. 
"A number of experiences that we had with Jose (Mourinho) at Inter Milan with (Marco) Branca which was always positive.
"Not only me as a manager but when I was with him so I think it's something that works. Since the first day I told the club that it's somebody who is extremely important in my view to the structure of the club."
