Portuguese tactician Andre Villas-Boas has been hospitalised after he suffered a crash during the Dakar Rally.
The 40-year old was taken to the hospital on Wednesday morning after his Toyota Hilux hit a dune during the fourth stage of the competition.
The former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur manager had made a solid start to his Dakar Rally debut before he was hurt with a back injury from the accident.
He was thereafter taken for treatment thereby cutting short his participation in the event in Peru.
While speaking on the unfortunate incident, Overdrive team director Jean-Marc Fortin said: “Andre was taken to the hospital with a back injury.
“It was unfortunate for Andre, who was making a very positive debut in the Dakar.” he concluded.
