Inter Milan defender Joao Miranda: I'm best in Serie A

Inter Milan defender Joao Miranda has declared himself the best in Italy.

At 33, Miranda feels at the peak of his powers.

“In terms of experience, but not only that, I consider myself to be the best defender in Serie A," Miranda said.

“I think that I am a complete package as a defender, with both technique and pace. Off the field I am very calm and always think before acting. I take that attitude on to the pitch, too.

“I speak to Luciano Spalletti all the time, during training and when we do video research. I like him as a Coach, as he always wants to win, just like me.

“The best game I've had with Inter is the 3-2 victory over Milan. It was a wonderful match and winning a derby is always the best feeling.

“I love Italian food, especially lasagne. I have to say, the food in Italy is the best in the world. Unfortunately, I am a useless cook, I can just make a boiled egg and pasta in a packet."
