Berti: Inter better than Tottenham

Former Inter midfielder Nicola Berti believes the Nerazzurri are ‘slightly better’ than Tottenham Hotspur ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash.

Berti made over 300 appearances for Inter, winning a Scudetto and two UEFA Cups, while he helped Tottenham avoid relegation from the Premier League in 1998.

“Today the two teams are very close but I think Inter are still slightly better,” the 51-year-old told The Independent.

“Tottenham are fantastic in attack, very good in midfield, but so-so in defence. They concede too many goals.

“Inter have a lion up front in Mauro Icardi, while the squad is a lot stronger thanks to the Croatians who have grown in confidence after reaching the World Cup Final.

“Harry Kane is the only English forward of the last 30 years who I really like. I admire him a lot because he is a complete footballer.

“He can play for the team, he is good with the right and the left foot, with the head. I don’t often like English forwards but he’s an exception.

“He’s the best Spurs striker since Klinsmann.”
