Tottenham have many champions, not just Bale - Inter boss Stramaccioni

Inter Milan manager Andrea Stramaccioni is planning to stop more than just Gareth Bale in the Europa League this week.

The Nerazzurri head to Tottenham for the Round of 16 first leg with much being said and written about the star Welshman who is in stellar form at present.

But Stramaccioni is of the belief that Andre Villas-Boas has a number of quality players on his roster and insists there is more to Spurs than Bale.

"I think Tottenham are not only a very strong team physically, but they also has great quality," Stramaccioni said.

"Villas-Boas had the opportunity to develop with one of the best coaches in the world: Jose Mourinho.

"Bale is now one of the most complete players on the European scene; he is becoming crucial.

"Though Bale is strong, Tottenham have many champions. But we also have top players and have absolutely no fear. It's Tottenham-Inter, not Bale-Inter."
