Former Inter, AC Milan, Roma and Real Madrid full-back Christian Panucci, was interviewed by Gazzetta dello Sport about the fate of his two former teams from Milano.

“I think that Inter will be above Milan both after the derby and at the end of the season. I know Montella and Pioli well, Stefano has brough in continutity, Vincenzo is a great manager but his squad isn’t better than a 6-8th place finishing side.”

“I’m a coach and not a Sporting Director, so I’ll leave the names to Ausilio. Inter however need to strenghten the team in the full-back department and also need to hang on to Perisic, who is a key player in my opinion as he is fantastic. He has strength, technique, speed everything” Panucci concluded.
