Nerazzurri Legend Walter Zenga: “Inter In Scudetto Race With Rest Of Serie A Top 4”

Legendary former Inter goalkeeper Walter Zenga feels that the Nerazzurri are in a Scudetto race with the likes of Atalanta, AC Milan, and Napoli.

Speaking to Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the 61-year-old gave the view that the top four have clearly separated themselves from the rest of the Serie A table and are vying to win the league.

Headed into the international break, Milan and Napoli looked to have been the two teams showing Scudetto-winning form, as they were both seven points clear of Inter, and ten clear of fourth-place Atalanta.

However, since then the Nerazzurri and La Dei have been the form teams in the Italian top flight, winning four matches from four while the Partenopei and the Rossoneri have dropped points.

According to Zenga, all four of these teams are now in a class of their own compared to the rest of the division, and it is not clear which one will be able to go on and win the Scudetto.

“There is no looking past the top four and it is impossible, at the moment, to say who is most probable to win it,” he said of the Scudeto race.

“They are all in it,” he added, “close to each other, each with their own particular qualities and each capable of hitting a very high level physically and technically. And each have very intelligent coaches on their bench.”

Of Inter’s match against Real Madrid this evening, he stated that “It makes me laugh that anyone would think that Inter, already qualified for the knockouts, might go to Madrid distracted or satisfied with what has been achieved.”

“A player might get the chance to set foot at the Bernabeu only once,” he went on, “and if he does, then he plays for the team, for himself, for pride, for professionalism.”

“Europe will affect the Scudetto in part, but in my opinion the lopsided calendar is the big variable of this year,” Zenga stated.

He explained that “After the break, Juventus vs. Napoli and Milan vs. Roma are the first matches; after that, Inter vs. Lazio and Roma vs. Juventus; then, the fifth the derby at San Siro.”
