Spurs boss Villas-Boas confident Townsend can handle spotlight

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas hopes Andros Townsend can handle the hype now around him.

AVB says Townsend now must step up his game to confirm his new status.

"Obviously when you get public and media recognition you have to tolerate it," the Tottenham manager said. "He (Townsend) has to step up his game. I suppose Jack Wilshere falls into that category.

"He is a great product of English football. Sometimes they are chased, sometimes a victim and sometimes guilty.

"But at these moments you have to stay strong with your personality and continue to perform for club and country."
