The 34-year-old signed a three-year contract at White Hart Lane on Tuesday, succeeding Harry Redknapp, who was dismissed in June. AVB was one of the favourites for the position with fans who bet on sport, long before he was appointed.
Villas-Boas will be out to prove his worth, following an ill-fated spell with Chelsea. He has been given an opportunity to re-establish himself in the capital, and is determined to take it with both hands.
"For me, this is one of the most exciting coaching positions in the Premier League," said Villas-Boas.
"This is a squad any coach would love to work with. Together, I believe we can bring success in the seasons ahead."
The Porto-born coach had drawn comparisons with compatriot and mentor, Jose Mourinho, after he burst onto the managerial scene with Porto.
Villas-Boas won the Portuguese domestic double and the Europa League in 2010-11, giving him a treble in his first season in charge. He resigned as Porto boss last summer, and took the reins at Stamford Bridge at the ripe old age of 33.
Villas-Boas struggled to assert his authority on an opinionated Chelsea squad, and was sacked less than 12 months into a three-year deal in March.
Despite leaving the Premier League with a battered reputation only a few months ago, Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, had no hesitation in handing the Portuguese the reins at White Hart Lane.
"He has an outstanding reputation for his technical knowledge of the game and for creating well-organised teams capable of playing football in an attractive and attacking style," said Levy.
Villas-Boas will meet his former employers at White Hart Lane on October 20, with his first return to Stamford Bridge scheduled for April 13.
