Holtby eyes Europa League glory

14 March 2013 13:54

Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby believes his side have the quality to win the Europa League this season.

The 22-year-old, who moved to White Hart Lane from Schalke in January, believes Tottenham are on track after their 3-0 last-16 first-leg win over Inter Milan last Thursday,

But Holtby is ultimately aiming for Champions League football.

"Tottenham are a massive club. In Germany, they're not seen as such perhaps, but people must come here and see what a club they are," he told Goal.com.

"We have a good team and a good team spirit. We are all very professional over here.

"We should not be underestimated given the quality we have in the squad. I have a feeling we could win (the Europa League) but that will be tough. There is still a long way to go. We still have to play the second leg against Inter.

"We want to play in the Champions League and to be the best team in London."

Gareth Bale has been in fine form lately, having scored 10 goals in his past nine appearances to help Andre Villas-Boas' side into third place in the English Premier League.

Holtby says that there is more to come from the Welsh winger.

"He's a quiet but very professional guy," he said. "On the other hand, he also likes joking around a bit but he's just a really good guy. Despite all the hype around him, he's got his feet on the ground.

"He works very hard. Gareth is just a sporting animal who has no fat on him and is very big. He also has a shot like a horse.

"The season is not over yet and Gareth is determined to score a few more goals."
