Tottenham Hotspur defenders Sebastien Bassong and Younes Kaboul say the club's main aim is to qualify for the Champions League this season.

After losing out to Arsenal in the race for fourth spot, Spurs have been consigned to a season in the Europa League, after they reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season.

And the defensive duo are insistent that the club want another bite of the cherry in Europe's premier club competition, but warn it'll be a tough ask to reach an ever-competitive top-four.

“The league is getting crazier and crazier," Bassong said. "We can’t even pick who is going to be in the top four or who is going to get relegated.

“It is really interesting and there will be a lot of teams involved in the title race. There are six or seven teams battling for a spot in the top four.

“It is going to be a tough season, you have to win regularly and keep the levels really high no matter who we are playing against.”

“We’re doing quite well this season and for us our target, most importantly, is to get back into the Champions League next season," Kaboul added.

“That’s why we’re trying to improve every weekend, trying to win every game, to get back there next season.

“For two years now everything has been going OK because everyone is working the same way and that’s the most important thing for a football team.

“Last season we had a beautiful time in the Champions League and this season [in the Europa League] it’s a bit different but we’re working hard to get back there and we can do it.”
