Lamela urges Tottenham to go for Europa League

Tottenham winger Erik Lamela feels they should they everything at winning the Europa League this season.

The Europa League may be a competition that some clubs shun but, like his manager Andre Villas-Boas, Lamela is desperate to win it.

He told the Mirror: "Tottenham are a big ­European club so it is normal that we are one of the main candidates for the Europa League ­title.

"The trips to Russia can be complicated but we are professional players and the minimum requirement is to give your best performance in any game.

"The squad is big and we are able to fight in both the Europa League and Premier League.

"The Europa League is the second-most important trophy for clubs in Europe and many players want to win it in their careers.

"Nobody in Spurs would snub this trophy and our minimum challenge is to reach the final."
