Former Inter striker Ronaldo spoke to two Italian news outlets at yesterday’s Balon D’Or awards ceremony. Il Fenomeno first spoke on Inter’s start to the season.
“Inter deserves to be in first place in the standings,” he told Premium Sport. He added, “I am sure they can win the Scudetto. I am very happy with the work of manager Luciano Spalletti.”
The Brazilian then spoke to Sky Sport on Saturday’s game, the Derby D’Italia.
“I have incredible memories [of this fixture], certainly it is a classic game. Inter are having a great season, for sure I will be watching in front of the TV. Luciano Spalletti is doing very well, I am happy for him because doing well in the Italian league is not easy.”
Ronaldo concluded discussing current Inter captain Mauro Icardi.
“He is a great player, he is carrying on scoring a lot of goals for Inter and playing good football.”
