Ex-Torino Coach Moreno Longo: “Even With The Champions League Inter Would’ve Been Serie A Title Contenders”

Former Frosinone and Torino manager Moreno Longo has shared his belief that Inter would have remained serious title contenders even if they had remained in the UEFA Champions League.

Inter were knocked out of the competition at the group stage for the third consecutive season last week and whilst remaining in the competition would have meant playing at least another pair of mid-week games in the new year, Longo does not think that that would have hampered the Nerazzurri’s Serie A title chances.

“The Champions is always the most difficult competition, you have to get there in excellent conditions and the teams are of the highest level,” he explained in an interview with Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.

“You can’t miss a single match. In any case, Inter, even playing the Champions League, would have been a serious contender for the title in Serie A. By allocating all of their resources to the league, they can focus more on winning it.”

Inter are currently without a Serie A title win since their historic treble win 10 years ago and last season was the closest they have come in the time since with them finishing just one point behind league winners Juventus.

Antonio Conte’s side are currently sitting in second place in the table after 11 games played. They have 24 points and are three adrift of league leaders AC Milan.
