Costacurta: Bale is scary

Former Milan defender Alessandro Costacurta has warned Inter against the threat of Gareth Bale as the Nerazzurri prepare to face Tottenham.

Andrea Stramaccioni's side will play the north London club in the last 16 of the Europa League on Thursday.

But the 46-year-old has insisted that the San Siro will be up against it.

“Inter will have to watch out,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “They have been unfortunate with this tie.

“Andre Villas-Boas' team are in form at the moment, and Gareth Bale is scary!”

The Wales international has been attracting the attention of some of the biggest clubs in Europe this term, guiding Spurs to third in the Premier League.
