Ex-Nerazzurri Director Marco Branca: “Difficult Serie A Ahead As Lazio, Juventus, Roma, Napoli & Inter Have All Appointed Great Coaches”

Former Inter striker and Sporting Director Marco Branca has predicted that the upcoming Serie A season will be competitive, believing that several major clubs have appointed talented coaches.

In an interview published in yesterday’s print edition of Italian newspaper Leggo, as reported by L’Interista, the 56-year-old predicts that the coaching abilities of the men on the sidelines will prove crucial in determining the outcome of the season in the Italian top flight.

As Nerazzurri supporters will be well familiar with, last season’s manager Antonio Conte has departed to be replaced by former Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi.

However, this is far from the only major arrival in the dugout in Serie A, with the likes of Max Allegri at Juventus, Maurizio Sarri at Lazio, Jose Mourinho at Roma, and Luciano Spalletti at Napoli having all arrived, and each will be hoping to make an instant impact.

In fact, of last season’s top seven, the only clubs not to have changed managers in the summer are AC Milan and Atalanta, sticking with Stefano Pioli and Gian Piero Gasperini respectively.

Branca is of the opinion that the player signings could be less important than these managers’ influence:

“Negotiations started now could go on for a long time, the market without money is very difficult. Very good coaches have arrived, look at Lazio, Naples, Rome , Inter and Juventus, and this makes it clear that the quality and technical level has risen. It will be a very difficult championship.”
