Former Juventus midfielder Mauro Camoranesi discussed the Covid-19 pandemic, the title race between the Bianconeri and Inter and the season so far in an interview in today’s paper edition of the Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.
First, he touched on how he was not too excited about seeing AC Milan at the top of the league table after seven games.
“Not so much. Right now, because of Covid, all the European leagues are a bit strange. I am convinced that in the long run the real values will come out. It will be the most balanced season of the last ten years because never before like this, this season anyone can beat and lose against anyone.
“But I believe that in spring the main candidates for the title will be Juventus and Inter. Conte is very criticized, but I think he’s good, he has built a solid team, which is the most difficult aspect. Maybe sometimes he is too predictable, but I am sure that Antonio will know how to liven it up.”
The 2006 World Cup winner then touched on how Swedish veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be enough to carry the Rossoneri to the league title this season.
“I don’t think so because the season will be really long and Milan doesn’t seem to have enough resources to cope with any important absences.
“However, the Rossoneri and Gattuso’s Napoli, whom I love, I think they’ll be close to Juventus and Inter until the end.”
Inter are currently seventh in Serie A after seven games, sitting on 12 points, one behind rivals Juventus. Antonio Conte’s side have only won one game in their last five in the league, frustrating considering how the team seem to dominate their opposition.
Conte will be hoping that the squad bounce back with a win against Torino tomorrow, before a key Champions League fixture against Real Madrid next week.
