Lazio coach Vladimir Petkovic insists they're going for a win over Europa League opponents Tottenham.

Petkovic warns he has no intention of “sending negative signals” by rotating the winning Lazio side.

“In the last two or three years the mentality has changed in Italy with regards to the Europa League, so it is considered more important,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“For me it is important to play on an international level, because it can help the team to grow by facing a different reality. The differences in football can only be positive and seen as a learning experience.

“Squad rotation? I don’t think it’s necessary in the first few games. For the moment we will continue with a squad that is doing well. I wouldn’t like to ruin anything by sending negative signals.”
