Goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes believes his team have nothing to fear when they travel to Italy to take on reigning European champions, Inter.
Harry Redknapp’s men have made a promising start to their first Champions League campaign, and currently lie second in Group A level on points with Inter having conceded a goal more.
But despite the array of world class talent in the Nerazzurri ranks, Gomes believes Spurs should approach the match full of confidence, “We’re not worried about going there and playing them. We need to believe in ourselves and need to keep going like in our last two Champions League games.”
Keane returns to Italy.
Robbie Keane returns to one of his former clubs, and was in reflective mood about his time in Italy.
The Irishman joined the Milanese giants when they signed him as a 19-year-old from Coventry, but once in Serie A, Keane found his first team opportunities blocked by Messrs Ronaldo, Vieri and Recoba.
However, despite making a swift return back to English football, Keane says he never regretted the move, “I had a great time over there, I really enjoyed it. They are great people over there so it’s something I can look back on, to go over there as a 19-year-old kid and play for one of the biggest clubs in the world, as one of the greatest times in my life and something I will never forget.”
Inter wanted Jenas.
Jermaine Jenas has admitted his head was turned by a move to Inter last summer.
Rumours arose that former Coach Jose Mourinho wanted to take Jenas to the San Siro, with il Biscione going on to win the treble of league title, Coppa Italia and the European Cup.
Jenas told the Evening Standard, “You want to play in Europe and Inter went on to win the Champions League last year. The Jose Mourinho factor was there and a lot of players would love to play for him. At that particular time I am not going to say it did not interest me.”
