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.”
