Andre Villas-Boas was sacked as Chelsea manager on Sunday after a brief, unsuccessful spell in charge at Stamford Bridge. Here is a factfile of the Portuguese coach's managerial career:

Born: October 17, 1977

Birthplace: Porto, Portugal

Early career:

From 2002 to 2009, he worked as an opposition scout at Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan.

Management jobs:

British Virgin Islands (2000-01)

Was in charge for just two matches and lost both.

Academica de Coimbra (2009-10)

Took over with the Portuguese club bottom of the table and without a win.

Guided them to an 11th-place finish and a Portuguese League Cup semi-final.

Porto (2010-11)

Leads Porto to their 25th league title, finishing with their biggest ever winning margin of 21 points. Only the second club to win the Portuguese league with an unbeaten campaign.

Also wins the Europa League with a 1-0 triumph over fellow Portuguese side Braga in Dublin and then guides club to the treble with a 6-2 win over Vitoria de Guimaraes in Portuguese Cup final.

Chelsea (2011-12)
