Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is ready to hand his players a four-day break.

He will give his Tottenham players a four-day spring break in a bid to freshen up their quest for a Champions League spot.

The Portuguese coach revealed last night he has decided to allow his men some down time, whatever the result of their Europa League game in Basel tonight.

"We have organised to give our players a break, so it's a good opportunity for us to rest," Villas-Boas said.

"It will also mean we have a big week to prepare for the Manchester City game because we will return to training on Tuesday."
