A former coach of AS Roma has suggested that Inter’s chances of retaining the Scudetto this season are very hard to predict after high profile departures, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during an interview with Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Rudi Garcia explained that gaining Edin Dzeko is good for the Nerazzurri, but losing Romelu Lukaku and changing coach makes things much harder.

“There is a lot of competition in Italy. The league is very open. Edin Dzeko arrived at Inter, but they lost Romelu Lukaku, and changed coach. I am very curious to see what happens.”

Discussing other teams who may want to take advantage of the incredibly open looking title race that Serie A fans may be treated to this year, Rudi Garcia listed a number of clubs who may kick on this year.

“Milan are back, they did not qualify for the Champions League for a long time, there are other great teams, Napoli, Lazio and Atalanta, who is no longer a surprise.”

He then discussed the club that he coached between 2013 and 2016. He is clearly excited to see Jose Mourinho take charge of the Giallorossi as he has won titles at almost every club he has managed in his career, including when he coached Inter.

“Over the years, no one has more experience, but he is a coach who has won everywhere, at a great level. This does not change over the years.”
