Andre Villas-Boas has revealed how Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy wanted him to leave Spurs for Paris Saint-Germain and explained how their relationship turned sour when he refused. 

Villas-Boas was sacked following Tottenham's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool in 2013. The result marked the club's biggest deficit in 16 years and left them sitting seventh in the Premier League table. 

As a result, Villas-Boas was forced to leave the club in December. However, the 44-year-old has revealed how Levy tried to get rid of him in the summer of 2013 when PSG registered an interest in his services.

Levy wanted Villas-Boas to take the job at the Ligue 1 side. He was interested in the compensation the north London club would receive as a result of his departure. 

However, Villas-Boas - who lead Spurs to a fifth place finish and to the last 16 of the Europa League in his first season in charge - said no. 

The Portuguese football manager said he wanted to stay at Spurs for his love for the club but recalled how his relationship with Tottenham's hierarchy turned sour as a result.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Villas-Boas said: 'The PSG offer was on the table. Yeah, Daniel wanted to sell me for £15million. PSG obviously didn't want to pay £15m and there were a lot of things that weren't right with Paris Saint-Germain, particularly on their approach.
