Andre Villas-Boas says Tottenham are taking Europa League seriously

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas says Spurs will put all their resources into bringing the Europa League trophy to White Hart Lane this season.

The London side open their campaign against Lazio at White Hart Lane on Thursday.

Two years ago Villas-Boas won the competition as manager of Porto during a year that saw him collect four trophies, but the Portuguese says he cannot live off past glories.
