INTER MILAN manager Roberto Mancini has pinpointed his former Manchester City protege John Guidetti as the Celtic danger man for this week's Europa League clash and insists he will soon recapture his scoring form.

Mancini will bring his Inter side to Glasgow on Thursday for the Last 32 first leg clash at Parkhead. He's a huge fan of the Swedish youngster and handed him his City debut in 2010. But, after an initial hot scoring burst when he first arrived on loan with the Scottish champions, the goals have alarmingly dried up for the 22-year-old - he's gone ten games in a row without a goal.

However, ahead of their final game today at Atalanta before they face the Hoops, Mancini insisted he still believes in Guidetti, who he also tried to sign for Inter as a teenager...he just hopes he doesn't bounce back to form against the Italians.

Mancini said: "I love John Guidetti because he is a good guy. He was a young player when we were both at Manchester City but he was a fantastic talent. He had a lot of injuries when he was with me but I hope that he has now recovered from what happened.

"John can go to the very top if his physical condition stays okay. He is a fantastic player and a quality striker, he is strong and he scores a lot of goals. He is good with his feet, he is skillful. I like John a lot. He is a good player.

"I hope John does not come back to haunt me, but I hope that he plays in these two games. I want him to score goals and have a lot of success in his career - but not against Inter Milan!"

Mancini admits he is wary of this week's trip to Glasgow and has had Ronny Deila's men watched in recent weeks, including their routine Old Firm win over Rangers.

He pointed out: "We know that this will be a very difficult game. Celtic are an incredible team and their supporters are fantastic.

"We have been scouting Celtic in the last few weeks and I watched the game against Rangers.

"It is clear that at this moment in time that Celtic are the best team in Scotland by far."
