Soccer Coach is also a motorsports enthusiast.
After having made his debut at Baja Portalegre 500 in 2016, in the promotion event, this year André Villas-Boas will do the whole course. Away from football since his departure from the Shanghai SIPG in November 2017, the Portuguese are waiting for the right moment to return to the match.
“Of course football is not set aside … and although it is usual for the market to shake up in January, in principle only in June 2019 should I return to the asset, unless there is never a certainty that it arises something very important. So now I have to charge batteries with this ‘bug’ before returning to football. You have to enjoy these things because it will be impossible to do it when you return to the action in my profession, “said Villas-Boas, in statements reproduced by AutoPortal.
After taking part in the Dakar at the wheel of a Toyota Hilux, the Portuguese coach will pilot this event in Alentejo a KTM.
“When I was in Baja de Portalegre for the first time, I felt that I could have gone further, that is, to do more kilometres, so I have now opted for the full race. The goal in Baja de Portalegre is to reach the end, manage the pace and have fun, “added the coach.
