Tottenham are still good enough to attract big players, insists Villas-Boas

The Portuguese believes that his side are still capable of landing their summer targets despite missing out on Champions League qualification to Arsenal on the final day
Andre Villas-Boas is adamant that Tottenham will still be able to attract big players despite missing out on Champions League qualification to Arsenal.

Spurs finished the 2012-13 Premier League campaign in fifth after beating Sunderland 1-0 at White Hart Lane on the last day, their north London rivals downing Newcastle by the same scorline to safeguard fourth spot.

The Portuguese is unworried, however, by the prospect of Europa League football turning away their transfer targets this summer.

"Tottenham is a wonderful club which continues to attract big players like we did this summer," Villas-Boas told BBC Sport.

"The market is extensive. You have talent everywhere in the world and you just have to be smart to get the best talent out."

Despite missing out on the top four, the Spurs boss insists that their campaign must been seen as a success, arguing: "We've been extremely competitive and I think we can only do it better next season.

"We have had a very good season. We have pushed two clubs that are used to titles to that fourth spot and third spot all of the way and I think we can make it better next season."
