Former Inter and AC Milan coach Alberto Zaccheroni believes that the Nerazzurri are the favourites to win Serie A and also have a chance in their Champions League tie against Liverpool.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Il Giornale, the former coach gave his thoughts on Inter’s strength this season and also gave the view that they are capable of progressing from their Champions League round of sixteen tie.

Inter have been in scintillating form in the Italian top flight, while they managed to get out of their Champions League group for the first time in a decade.

In Serie A Simone Inzaghi’s men look to be the favourites, though there are still many matches to go, but in Europe they’ve got their work cut out for them.

Against Liverpool, Inter will face one of the form teams on the continent and will expect perhaps their toughest test of the season so far, though Zaccheroni is confident that they have the capacity to get past the Reds.

Speaking about Serie A, Zaccheroni stated that “I have seen some ups and downs in all the teams, there has been some turbulence in the table but now the only side who have a clear path seem to be Inter who have acquired a winning mentality.”

He added that “They are mentally free, they are in great form, and Simone Inzaghi is rotating his team well so that even the players who come off the bench give their best.”

“You can see an atmosphere of positivity that is not there in the other teams,” he continued.

“Inter are in great form because there the chemistry between the coach and the players is there, it has freed them up mentally and they are doing very well,” Zaccheroni explained.

“I think the prove of Inzaghi’s impact has been Perisic,” he went on, “his performances are a barometer of how things are going at the Nerazzurri.”

“I don’t think it’s all doom and gloom against Liverpool,” the former coach predicted of the Champions League, “on the contrary, they are two games in which anything can happen.”

“Inter are solid, they are sure of themselves, they have quality, and so they can absolutely do it,” he concluded.
