Legendary former AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko has given the view that Inter will be able to maintain a high level in their Scudetto defense this season despite a difficult summer transfer window.
Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the Ukrainian offered his predictions for the complexion of this season’s Scudetto race, suggesting that the Nerazzurri’s summer of upheaval will not stop them from competing at the top of Serie A.
Shevchenko, formerly of Inter’s city rivals the Rossoneri as well as Dynamo Kiev and Chelsea as a player, most recently head coach of the Ukrainian national team, won one Scudetto in his career during the 2003-04 season.
He will know that competing at the highest level of the Italian top flight is tough, but he believes that the Nerazzurri will still be able to stay in the mix, though he also finds their rivals to be strong.
“Obviously, Inter have changed a lot but remain competitive. Then there is Napoli, Roma, and the usual Juventus, who started badly but will know how to pick themselves up. It’s very balanced, it will be a good season for this reason.”
