West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has criticised Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas for reacting badly to what the press have said about him.
The Hammers boss has labelled Villas-Boas as immature after he hit back at Daily Mail reporter Neil Ashton for what he wrote about the Spurs boss last week.
Boas has been put under a lot of pressure since the club’s 6-0 defeat to Manchester City and a lot of the media have scrutinised the Portuguese-manager claiming that he doesn’t get the tactics right and even claim that he never takes the blame for a defeat.
However, after watching his side draw 2-2 with Manchester United, the Spurs boss finally hit back and snapped at reporters for questioning him and his ability, but his retaliation has now put him under scrutiny from fellow Premier League manager, Sam Allardyce.
Speaking to TalkSport, Allardyce said: ‘You have to use the criticism as a motivational drive to show these people that they are wrong. You’ve got to take it on the chin.
‘You, and your players, have got to do your talking on the field. I think he’s just showed a little bit of immaturity.
‘It can get under your skin, but you’ve can’t let that happen because you’re not going to win.’
