Shanghai SIPG head coach Andre Villas-Boas claimed that he would make an announcement regarding his future after the FA Cup second-leg final against Shanghai Shenhua.
With the Chinese Super League (CSL) season over, the FA Cup is Villas-Boas’ last remaining chance of silverware.
However, former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur coach told reporters following Sunday’s narrow away-leg defeat: “My decision has already been taken regarding next season.
“You will know it at the end of the season, but it’s already taken and it’s not dependent on the result of the cup,” he added, as quoted by AFP.
Under Villas-Boas, SIPG finished second in the CSL behind Guangzhou Evergrande and went out in the semi-finals of the AFC Champions League.
