Former Inter and current Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo has admitted he believes his former employers have what it takes to fight it out for the Serie A title this season.
“I am still getting to grips with the Premier League but I am happy to have played in Serie A with two very strong teams,” he remarked in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia.
“I think Inter will contend for the Scudetto. Yesterday they won against Sassuolo, I watched it on television and Inter are a really strong team. Juventus are Juventus and they will fight for the title until the end.”
The Portuguese international, who spent a season with each of Inter and Juventus, then spoke on City’s next opponents in the Champions League, Atalanta.
“Atalanta are one of the best teams in Italy. They are very physical and technically good too with very good players. Tomorrow will be a spectacular match.”
