Tottenham boss Martin Jol would prefer to win the FA Cup than claim glory in Europe.
Martin Jol admits he would prefer his Tottenham side to go all the way in the FA Cup than claim glory in Europe.
Spurs are preparing for the second leg of their Uefa Cup tie with Braga on Wednesday, with Jol outlining his objectives for the rest of the season.
Though Jol admits the Uefa Cup is a prestigious competition, success on the domestic front is the Dutchman's chief priority, with Premiership points also still to be played for.
"I'd like to win the FA Cup first, then probably the Uefa Cup, then the year after the Championship," quipped Jol to Sky Sports News.
"The Uefa Cup would be nice but you have to be realistic, there are big teams in there. If I had to make a choice now I would want to win all the Premiership matches and finish fifth."
Jol also revealed Paul Robinson will be fit to return in goal for the weekend's Premiership match against Watford, quashing fears he could be missing from England duty.
A hamstring injury saw Robinson miss Spurs' FA Cup clash at Chelsea on Sunday but the keeper will be fit for Saturday.
"There will be no problem for Robbo with England. He will play for us on Saturday," said Jol.
