Tottenham boss AVB: Europa League good preparation for Champions League

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is convinced success in the Europa League will prepare them for future Champions League campaigns.

Villas-Boas believes success in Europe can help Tottenham's chances of lifting the ultimate prize in European football.

"For us to go on and eventually win the Champions League we have to get used to playing in these situations, both physically and mentally," he said.

"The overall objective is to get the points to progress in this competition, but there is obviously an education process that goes with that.

"There is a rotation of players that can happen in certain positions.

"But I am always to field the strongest team possible. And that can be a benefit in the learning process."
