Van der Meyde: Serie A is too tactical

Andy van der Meyde has warned AC Milan target Anwar El Ghazi about the difficulties he might face joining the Italian giants.

The former Inter Milan midfielder, whose career was blighted by injuries, interviewed the Ajax winger on his Dutch TV show 'Bij Andy in de auto' about his reported move to the Rossoneri.

"Italy is not for you," the Van der Meyde said. "I was wrong to go to Inter as Italian football is too tactical. I wasn't able to defend, but there they forced me to do so."

El Ghazi has developed into one of the most-sought after prospects in Europe under the tutelage of Frank De Boer in the Eredivisie this season.

After scoring 10 goals in 19 games, the Netherlands international is seemingly content at the idea of remaining at the Amsterdam Arena.

"I'm happy at Ajax, I'm really happy here," El Ghazi told Van der Meyde when asked about his future.
