Stramaccioni relishing Spurs test
By Football News
Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni issued a warning to Tottenham after his side dispatched CFR Cluj to set up meeting the Premier League club.
The Serie A team sailed through to the last 16 of the Europa League with a 5-0 aggregate win, after a comfortable 3-0 second-leg victory over Cluj on Thursday.
A brace from Fredy Guarin and a late goal from Marco Benassi was enough to secure the victory over the Romanian side. And Stramaccioni, talking to reporters after the game, said he was now looking forward to facing Spurs.
"They're a top side, at Champions League level, but we're Inter and we'll show what we're about," he said.
The Inter boss said he was pleased with his side’s Europa League performance on the back of a 4-1 defeat to Fiorentina in Serie A.
"My team gave an excellent response by winning again on the road - something we'd not done in a while - and winning well," he said.
"(Will it have a) positive impact? Let's say today we were angry and smarting after the defeat against Fiorentina. We knew that wasn't the real us in Florence."
