Alvarez: Tottenham are a strong team

Inter attacker Ricky Alvarez is wary of the threat posed by Tottenham as his side prepare to face the north London club in the Europa League.

The Nerazzurri travel to White Hart Lane to play Andre Villas-Boas' men in the last 16 of the competition on Thursday.

And the Argentine midfielder knows it will be a tough encounter, whilst also commenting on the Beneamata's win over Catania at the weekend.

“I am happy for the three points,” he told Italia 2. “We haven't been at our best in the last few games and this will help us regain some confidence.

“Now we are ready for the game with Tottenham. But we know that we'll come up against a strong team that are doing very well in the Premier League at the moment.”
