Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas refuses to speculate over the vacant manager's position at Barcelona.

Andre Villas-Boas has refused to speculate on reports that he is being lined up to replace Tito Vilanova at Barcelona.

The La Liga champions confirmed that the 44-year-old is to step down from his post after a year in charge to focus on his treatment for throat cancer.

Speaking to Sky Sports News after Tottenham Hotspur's goalless draw with Colchester United this evening, the manager said: "It's a difficult situation. At this time all my wishes are with Tito.

"If he has to resign over illness, it's not the time to speak about speculation. We're speaking about a person's health, it's not even a question."

The club plans to announce Vilanova's replacement next week, with Villas-Boas emerging as the early favourite with the bookmakers.
