Mainland Metro News | Di Matteo tips Inter to upset City…says they have Chelsea spirit of 2012 | All the news you need...

Champions League surprise winner in 2012 with Chelsea, Roberto Di Matteo believes Inter Milan can upset Manchester City in Saturday’s Champions League final.
Di Matteo beat Barcelona coached by Pep Guardiola in the semi-final and then Bayern Munich at their own Allianz Arena backyard to win Chelsea’s first UCL title. Though he acknowledged that Inter are the underdogs in the upcoming encounter, they have every chance to beat City to the title.
“Pep Guardiola has an incredible team, but Inter have a chance. My Chelsea side taught that with motivation everything is possible.
“We were not favourites; everyone knew it. However, the comparison with Inter is not entirely accurate because Manchester City are not playing at home like Bayern and Simone Inzaghi can rely on a full team,” he said.
“Motivation makes the difference and we had it. We were not fully fit but convinced we could make it. Inter have the same spirit, they don’t look like a scared team.
“We knew how to defend and we had a champion like Didier Drogba. Inzaghi also has an organised team. Of course, they must know they won’t keep the ball much and must sacrifice, hurting them every time they have a chance.
“But Inter’s Drogba is my Lukaku. I knew him when he was 19 at Chelsea and I was Villas Boas’ assistant. I can say that if he’s fit he can break the world. He’s a beast and he never stops and he seems fit now…”
