Fiorentina goalkeeper Sebastien Frey heaped praise on Inter Milan counterpart Julio Cesar after last night's 2-0 defeat.

The Viola dominated the game but were undone by a double from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Frey, who complained about the ball being deflated during the game, admitted Brazilian Julio Cesar was "the difference".

He said: "We have similar characteristics and I believe that he is currently a goalkeeper that makes the difference. He's a goalkeeper of great quality and since he's arrived in Italy has improved a lot."
