Inter Boss Rafael Benitez Is Wary Of Tottenham Hotspurs' Speed On The Break.

Rafa Benitez will be watchful against the Tottenham Hotspur counter-attack when Inter meet them in the UEFA Champions League.
Rafa Benitez will take precautions against the speed and ability of Inter's next opponents in the UEFA Champions League, Tottenham Hotspur. The former Liverpool boss knows all too well the qualities that lie in the Spurs camp having had a few of the players under his watch at the Reds.

"Tottenham is a strong team with speed, quality and passion. They have quality players like [Peter] Crouch, Robbie Keane who I had at Liverpool and [Gareth] Bale is doing very well," Benitez told TMW.

"Tottenham are very dangerous as a team because of their speed and the ability to develop counter-attacks."

Benitez joked about the problems he is now having in everyday life after making his move to Milan with Inter after coming from Liverpool.

"At my presentation they gave me two ties, a black and blue one and one white. I couldn't take the first one because it's the same colour as Everton. The other day I went to buy an umbrella. I could chose between a red, blue and green one. Agata [his daughter] liked the red one but I couldn't buy it because Inter is blue. So I bought the green one," Benitez laughed.
