Villas-Boas says he is waiting to hear back from the board about his decision to resign as it seems the former Chelsea manager has lost trust with his employers.
As of now it is unknown how the Ligue 1 club will respond to the incident but experience would suggest this is the end of the road for the Portuguese manager.
