Villas-Boas was once hailed as Europe’s most promising young boss after being handed the reins at Stamford Bridge in 2011.

But he was sacked after 40 matches following just 19 wins before Chelsea ended the season with their first-ever Champions League win.

AVB then spent time at Tottenham, Zenit and Shanghai before his last gig with Marseille.

And he also enjoyed a bizarre spell in rally car racing, competing in the Dakar Rally in 2018.

But Villas-Boas now looks set for ANOTHER career change.

Diario de Noticias claims he will now “officially” run for President of Portuguese giants Porto in January.

Villas-Boas managed the heavyweights before Chelsea, winning 49 of his 58 games while leading them to a league title, Portuguese Cup and Europa League treble in 2011.

Villas-Boas has made his decision to run on the back of an unruly General Assembly for board members earlier this month.

A fight broke out as members were asked to cast votes on changes to the running of Porto, who are third in the Portuguese league and in second in their Champions Legue group ahead of the final round of games.

The meeting had to be abandoned amid chaotic scenes.

And AVB is looking to clean the house by officially announcing his Presidential run in January ahead of elections in April.

Villas-Boas bemoaned one of Porto’s “darkest days” as people scrapped at the abandoned meeting this month.

He said: “One of the darkest days in FC Porto history. No shame, no scruples, no respect for the Associates of this great Club.

“Porto needs to find itself on its principles, its values and its foundations, What has happened today can never happen again.”
