Zola: Pato can inspire Milan victory over Tottenham

Former Chelsea star Gianfranco Zola has told Tottenham to expect a tough game on Wednesday night as Spurs face Milan in the second leg of the Champions League last 16.

Zola told Italian sports website Gazzetta.it, “There is a chance for Milan, Milan are in form… there’s every chance they can win. Spurs leave opportunities for opponents when they go forward, and for this reason Pato will be important for Milan, getting in the spaces behind the defenders.”

Talking of Tottenham, who take a 1-0 lead into the second-leg at White Hart Lane, Zola said: “Tottenham are a great team, but also quite young, inexperienced. They will try and score goals, that’s for sure”

Zola also talked about his next move in management: “I don’t know what is next for me, but I wouldn’t rule out a return to Serie A.”
