Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas says they're in the Europa League to win it.

Fresh from Sunday's morale-boosting win over Reading - his first in charge of Spurs - the Portuguese hopes to end his two-year drought by leading the Londoners to victory in the Europa League.

"It does seem a long time since I won it with Porto," Villas-Boas said. "A lot of things have happened since then. The memories are still present but at this time I can't live off the past.

"In our position we can't think too much about the past. In this life you constantly have to motivate yourself and put pressure on yourself to win more (trophies).

"This time it would be wonderful to win it again for Tottenham."
