Andre Villas-Boas has claimed that his Porto team of 2011 were "pornographic" at times as they stormed to domestic and European success. He was only at the club for a single season, but that was enough for the former ​Chelsea and ​Tottenham manager to stamp his authority in Portugal.

In one season he won four trophies: the Europa League, Primeira Liga, and Taca de Portugal, plus the Portuguese season opener the Supertaca.

Speaking with ​Goal, Villas-Boas said, "In Porto, when we were preparing, the players guessed the team that was going to play.”But it’s true that this team was pornographic.

”With Hulk, Falcao, James, Moutinho, Fernando, Otamendi, was one of the best teams in the world. When you look at the career they have made after it, it’s amazing.”

Villas-Boas' year at Porto has been the most successful period of his career so far. He was sacked by Chelsea before the end of his first season at Stamford Bridge and ended up joining Tottenham that summer.

He lasted less than 18 months at Spurs, having been let go a day after they lost 5-0 at home to Liverpool in December 2013. He was confirmed as Marseille manager in May this year and is off to a good start. 

His side sit second in Ligue 1 and have won their last six matches.
