Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas has insisted his side will be stronger next season after missing out of a place in the top four of the Premier League and with it, qualification for the Champions League, BBC
Spurs beat Sunderland at White Hart Lane on the final day of the season but were reliant on Arsenal dropping points against Newcastle United, but a Laurent Koscielny goal ensured the Gunners picked up the maximum haul from St James’ Park.
Villas-Boas said: “We felt we did enough to deserve fourth spot. We are disappointed but we knew these could be the circumstances,” but added he felt that the club was in a strong position to improve over the summer and launch a more effective Champions League challenge next season.
“Tottenham is a wonderful club who will continue to attract big players and will continue to push on,” the Portuguese said. “It was a very good season. We pushed all the way for fourth and third spot and I think we can make it better next season,” Villas-Boas continued.

Spurs end the season in fifth place despite picking up their best-ever Premier League points tally, 72, surpassing the old total by two points, the BBC noted/
