Former Inter striker Christian Vieri has played down the Nerazzurri’s chances of fighting Juventus for the Serie A title next season.

Antonio Conte’s arrival as head coach has increased expectations surrounding the club ahead of the 2019-20 season, with the Italian himself admitting he had come to Milan to win.

Speaking to TuttoMercatoWeb, however, Vieri argued consolidating their place in Italy’s top four was a more realistic target in the short term for Inter.

“It’s wrong to think Inter should stop Juventus winning the title next season,” he said.

“Juventus are too far ahead and the Nerazzurri should concentrate on qualifying for the Champions League every year.

“You shouldn’t put too much pressure on Inter’s players by talking about winning the title.”

Vieri backed Conte to succeed at Inter but was keen to dedicate some words of praise for his predecessor Luciano Spalletti.

“Conte’s a great coach and I think he’ll do well at Inter,” Vieri asserted.

“I’m a friend of Antonio’s, but I’m also friends with Spalletti and I was disappointed to see him leave. He did well and I know what sort of person he is, but you always need to look ahead.”

Vieri also described reported transfer target Romelu Lukaku as ‘one of the best centre-forwards in the world’.
