Villas-Boas Take Positives from Spurs Difficult Escape in Europa League

Tottenham Hotspur managed to advance into the next stage or Europa League after eliminating Inter Milan, but it was not without a huge effort as Andre Villas-Boas side suffered a 4-1 defeat and having to play until extra time as well.

Villas-Boas stated that what happened to his side on Thursday was similar to Inter last week as the result clearly showed that both sides are not that much different in terms of quality and can defeat each others on their day.

Despite having to suffer, Villas-Boas said that there’s still plenty positives that they can take from the result, as Spurs players showed a strong desire to get into the next stage, although their organization play was very poor.
