Javier Zanetti says that Inter Milan will find Gareth Bale "difficult to deal with" when they take on Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday.

Inter Milan full-back Javier Zanetti has warned his teammates against the quality of Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale.

The two sides will clash with each other in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie at White Hart Lane on Thursday.

"We must be brave," he told Tuttosport. "But being on the front foot in a game like this will not be easy. Bale is a great player and will be difficult to deal with."

Bale has scored 16 goals in 24 Premier League appearances so far this season.
