Villas-Boas targets Tottenham Champions League qualification

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has dismissed suggestions that his team can challenge for the Premier League title this season after impressively winning at Old Trafford for the first time in 23 years thanks to goals from Jan Vertonghen, Gareth Bale and Clint Dempsey.

Rather, according to the Independent, Villas-Boas has outlined Champions League qualification as his primary target, after the Lilywhites missed out on participation in this season’s competition despite finishing fourth thanks to Chelsea’s unlikely victory in the competition last May.


Speaking after the Manchester United victory, Villas-Boas said: “This is a very special night for us but our quest is to qualify for the Champions League. It is very difficult to go for the title. We understand it is a place where the great teams of this country belong. We want to win a trophy this season - and we want Champions League qualification.”


After a shaky start to his reign as Spurs boss that brought no wins in three league games, Villas-Boas has recovered to lead his side to a five match unbeaten run that has seen three straight league victories, progression in the League Cup and a creditable draw with Italian heavyweights Lazio in their opening Group J Europa League clash. The Lillywhites travel to Panathinaikos on Thursday as Villas-Boas continues his quest to reclaim the trophy he won with Porto in 2011.
