AVB says Spurs did enough to beat Lazio
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas admitted his disappointment that three Spurs goals were disallowed as they played out a stalemate against Lazio but said he couldn’t fault his side’s endeavour.
Clint Dempsey, Jermain Defoe and Steve Caulker all saw efforts chalked off but they were the dominant side for much of the Europe League group J opener.
“I think we did enough to get the win today,” Villas-Boas told ITV4. “I am extremely happy with the performance and the effort that the players put in.
“You can’t reprimand them for anything, they were outstanding.
“They managed to create enough opportunities to win the game.
