Tottenham full back Kyle Walker believes that head coach Andre Villas-Boas has now settled into the role at White Hart Lane.

The Portuguese boss took charge of Spurs in the summer and the Lilywhites have evolved from the side that finished fourth under Harry Redknapp last season.

“All the lads are getting used to it now,” Walker said. “I was used to working with Kevin Blackwell, Neil Warnock and Harry Redknapp and foreign managers have a different way of playing football, but you have to adapt because you want to do well for the manager and for the club.

“The manager is not one to start raising his voice and chucking things but you can tell when he is angry. You know he is disappointed because he knows you can do better. I’ve not heard him shout yet, but he is very passionate about football and Tottenham.

“The manager is very tactically aware and he has helped me with my game in his time here. The training sessions are different every time depending on who we are playing and he has helped me with my game.”
