Inter Milan chief Zanetti insists they can handle Barcelona draw

Inter Milan chief Javier Zanetti insists they can handle being drawn with Barcelona in the same Champions League group.

Inter find themselves in the same group as Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur and PSV Eindhoven.

“We know that there are very strong sides in this tournament and we ended up in a difficult group, but will prepare well," Zanetti told Sky Sport Italia.

“We are aware of the difficulties we face, but we are Inter and must think positive. Barcelona is more than just Lionel Messi, as they have great players who can do extraordinary things and keep possession well."

Inter are going to have to improve from their Serie A start, managing just one point from the opening two rounds with Sassuolo and Torino.

“We are working with great confidence, it's just the start and we need to find our form. It's already a chance to win on Saturday with Bologna, then the break for international duty gives us more of an opportunity to work in training.

“I didn't expect a start like this, but that's football. There will always be difficulties, but we must believe in what we're doing."
