Not AC Milan, This Team Called Juventus Competitors Take Scudetto
Senior coach Alberto Zaccheroni rate not AC Milan, Inter Milan, and AS Roma that will compete with Juventus in the race Scudetto this season. Zaccheroni actually pointed Napoli as the toughest competitor. According to him, Maurizio Sarri’s care club is more compact and consistent.
“Surely the competition this season will be more difficult than some years before, because the level of squad from some big clubs has increased,” said the former Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan coach, to Tuttosport.
“Last season, Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri struggled in the first half of the season. But if you see what they do in the second half of the season, then everyone must be vigilant. The only weakness of Napoli is when everything is going well and the spirit of the players is soaring, there is a difficult moment where there is a misunderstanding between (President Aurelio) De Laurentiis and Sarri. That’s what screwed them up, “Zac continued – Zaccheroni greeting.
Zaccheroni argues that despite having spent 230 million euros on players’ shopping, AC Milan is still unstable, and therefore, will only be able to target the top four. The same assessment was also given the 64-year-old coach to Inter Milan and AS Roma.
“The Rossoneri have a big advantage. But they do not necessarily win the Scudetto. Most only finish in the top four. The fourth rank will be enough to satisfy their fans. Their transfer strategy is pretty scary, but it’s just enough to qualify for the Champions League, nothing more, “he said.
Interestingly, Zaccheroni predicts Torino will come to enliven the competition of the big four. With the composition of players like Andrea Belotti and M’Baye Niang, Il Granata is expected to be able to compete with Inter Milan, Roma and AC Milan.
“Torino can finish in the top four. Hopefully this does not put too much pressure on my friend, Sinisa Mihajlovic. From year to year, this club is growing. They have Andrea Belotti, the attackers that all clubs want, and also players who want to improve their previous experience, such as M’Baye Niang, “said Zac.
