Villas-Boas says Inter Milan are best team left in Europa League

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas believes Inter Milan represent "the best of the best" in the last 16 of the Europa League, as Spurs prepare to face them in the first leg of the last 16.

The Portuguese manager says Tottenham will "have to be very cautious" against the Italian side, who he thinks will be well aware of the threat posed by Gareth Bale.

Spurs are currently third in the Premier League, while Inter - who won the Champions League in 2010 under Jose Mourinho - lie in fourth place in Serie A.
