Juan Sebastian Veron has shared his opinion on the title race that is ongoing in Serie A between Inter, Juventus and Lazio.

“If I have to say a name, I still say Juventus. They are ahead and used to it but Inter and Lazio are doing very well and have the enthusiasm to keep fighting until the end,” he said in an interview with Milanese newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Inter and Lazio do have a real weight on their shoulders however. They are condemned to do nothing wrong and must always run at a thousand miles per hour.”

The former Argentine international then shared his admiration for former Inter president Massimo Moratti.

“He was the greatest president I ever met. I never heard him scream or treat anyone badly. In my opinion, after speaking with the players, he would then let off steam in private. He made people want to feel close to the club.

Next he spoke on how former teammate Diego Simeone and current Inter manager Antonio Conte’s ways as managers reflect how they were on the pitch.

“They were essential. They had a different eye for things and already saw things like managers do. Conte has built an intense Inter and that can be seen from afar. For me, anyone who says that Conte and Simeone’s team play badly do not understand football.”

Veron then spoke on Inter striker Lautaro Martinez.

“He can go wherever he wants. If he wants. It is up to him to decide his path, he has enormous potential.”

In conclusion, Veron discussed San Siro and its uncertain future.

“San Siro is historic, it is a monument but in Italy there is a need to have new stadiums and the country have a duty to understand that.”
