Tottenham defender Kyle Walker insists Spurs should take no notice of jibes about playing in the Europa League.

Spurs host Maribor on Thursday night looking to record their first win in Group J after three successive draws.

While some may feel the tournament lacks star quality, defender Walker sees no reason to treat their European campaign with any less enthusiasm.

“Some people aren’t even on Channel Five on Thursday nights, so it is definitely something I want to win on a personal level and I am sure the lads and the gaffer want to do as well,” said the England international.

Despite their stuttering start, the 22-year-old sees no reason why Andre Villas-Boas’ men cannot end the qualification stage in strong form.

“No disrespect to them [opponents], but these are all winnable games,” he said.

“With the players we have in our team - we have world-class internationals - we can win this one, go to Lazio and give them a good game, and beat Panathinaikos and the table will look good come the end of it.”
