Ex-Inter Defender Marco Materazzi: “Inter Still The Scudetto Favourites, If Lorenzo Insigne Leaves We All Lose A Bit”

Former Inter defender Marco Materazzi has claimed that Inter are the Scudetto favourites and also expressed sadness at Lorenzo Insigne’s possible move, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during an interview with Il Mattino, the former Inter and Italian national team defender discussed the current state of the Serie A title race.

He feels that Inter are certainly the favourites but that does not mean that AC Milan and Napoli can be ruled out just yet as they are only four and seven points behind Inter respectively.

“The favourite is still Inter, but for the title race there is not only the Nerazzurri. Milan is second on four points and this means that they are absolutely not out of the game. And then I also add Napoli.”

Inter’s run of seven games won in Serie A coupled with the injury issues at AC Milan and Napoli has helped the situation for the Nerazzurri.

Another topic discussed was the possible departure of Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne to Toronto in MLS. He has been offered a lucrative deal that Italian teams cannot match at this time and it is likely he will leave at the end of the season.

Owing to his quality, Marco Materazzi feels this is bad for everyone in Italy, saying: “If he really had to go away, I think we would all lose a bit. Lorenzo was the winning weapon of Italy, European champion and he is also of Naples.”
