Despite beating Sunderland 1-0 on the last day of the Premier League season, Tottenham failed to break into the top four and were forced to concede the race for the last Champions League spot to London rivals Arsenal.
Villas-Boas is expected to face a fight on his hands to keep PFA Player of the Year Gareth Bale this summer, with several Champions League clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United believed to be leading the race to sign him.
The Portuguese also told BBC Sport that Spurs' failure to make the cut for Europe's premier compeition will not cost them the chance to sign the world's leading footballing geniuses during the transfer window.
"Tottenham is a wonderful club which continues to attract big players like we did this summer," Villas-Boas insisted.
"The market is extensive. You have talent everywhere in the world and you just have to be smart to get the best talent out."
Reflecting on the club's Premier League campaign, Villas-Boas believed the team could only get better, after facing off against some of their more illustrious neighbours in a battle to the wire for a place in the Champions League this year.
"We've been extremely competitive and I think we can only do it better next season," he stated.
"We have had a very good season. We have pushed two clubs that are used to titles to that fourth spot and third spot all of the way and I think we can make it better next season."
