Ex-Udinese Coach Francesco Guidolin: “After Joaquin Correa Signing Inter On Par With Juventus”

Former coach Francesco Guidolin believes that with the signing of Joaquin Correa from Lazio, Inter have once again made themselves strong enough that they are among the favourites for the Scudetto.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in yesterday’s print edition, the 65-year-old gave the view that the Argentine’s arrival could constitute the last piece needed to put the Nerazzurri back into contention against their rivals Juventus.

Inter lost striker Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea earlier this month in a move that came as a shock to many and has undoubtedly led to the weakening of the team when it occurred.

However, the club have been busy in the time since, securing the arrivals of two attacking reinforcements in the form of Roma’s Edin Dzeko and now Joaquin Correa from Lazio.

Guidolin believes that the squad now has more than enough quality to compete against the Bianconeri and the rest of Serie A.

“It cannot be said that after selling Lukaku Inter haven’t lost anything,” he said, “because Lukaku is extraordinarily reliable. He reminds me of Luca Toni, for his prolific goalscoring, and not just that.”

He continued in his praise for the Belgian, stating that “Lukaku knows how to score, he knows how to raise the team, he is a driving force.”

Nevertheless, the former Udinese, Bologna, and Palermo coach believes that the attacking reinforcements have been adequate, stating that “Dzeko is a player of great quality, and with Lautaro and Sanchez Inter maintains a formidable attacking lineup.”

Guidolin added that “If they sign Correa they can find themselves on a par with Juve, who have something more in terms of the quality of individuals so far.”
