Andre Villas-Boas set to return to football after brief Motorsport career

Andre Villas-Boas is set to return to the dugout, having not managed since 2017. 

The 41-year old coach, who has managed the likes of Porto, Chelsea and Tottenham, most recently managed Chinese outfit Shanghai SIPG.

He left that managerial role 18 months ago to take up a career in Rally driving, a long held ambition of his.

But now he is ready to return to the dugout, with a new club already lined up. 

It is expected that Villas-Boas' next venture will see him move to France, where he will become first-team manager of Marseille. 

Negotiations between the two parties are underway, and it is expected that the Portuguese coach will soon be announced as the successor of Rudi Garcia.

It is expected that he could earn as much as 600,000 euros a month.
