Former football coach André Villas-Boas made a striking career switch to rallying

Former football coach André Villas-Boas will soon make his World Rally Championship debut. Villas-Boas, who has trained Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, will play in the third division.

Villas-Boas left Olympique Marseille in troubled circumstances last March, but now has a striking new adventure in the pipeline. The 43-year-old Portuguese will take part in Rally Portugal in WRC3, the third division in rallying. Villas-Boas will drive a Citroen C3.

For the Portuguese trainer it is not his debut in motorsport. In 2018 he took part in the Dakar Rally, but did not reach the finish line at the time. During the fourth stage in Peru, he injured his back after parking his car in a sand dune. He was then active as a coach of the Chinese top club Shanghai SIPG.
