Napoli’s Inler ready for any opponent

Napoli midfielder Gokhan Inler insists he’s not bothered who his club is drawn with in the knock-out stages of the Champions League.

The Azzurri will learn the identity of their last 16 opponents on Friday after qualifying from Group A with Bayern Munich – at the expense of Manchester City and Villarreal.

“I have no preference when it comes to the Champions League draw,” the Swiss international stated. “We’ll have to beat whoever we get.”

Napoli will face a group winner, but can’t play Bayern or fellow Italian outfit Inter in the next stage. They could get Benfica, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Arsenal, Apoel Nicosia or Barcelona.

Milan will also be in tomorrow’s draw after they finished behind reigning European champions Barcelona in their section.
