Robben: Inter aren't the best

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben thinks Inter are a tough nut to crack, but also insists that they aren't the best team in Europe.

Robben was on the losing side in last season's Champions League Final when Inter beat Bayern Munich 2-0 thanks to a brace from Diego Milito.

Interviewed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Robben said: "Inter remain a tough opponent, but they are not the most dangerous.

"A lot has changed since the Final in Madrid. The possibilities are now equal. But we are not talking about revenge. It's only a second round knock-out match.

"The true revenge would be another Final.

"Inter must pay attention to Franck Ribery. He wasn't playing in Madrid. It's much simpler when Franck is on the pitch.

"Inter shouldn't just care about me."

Asked for his opinion of Serie A, Robben replied: "It remains an interesting League with good players. But at times you enter negative cycles which last for many years."
