Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri has said that Inter were the Scudetto favourites last year but AC Milan can win the title again, according to a report in the Italian print media today.
Speaking during an interview with the Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Maurizio Sarri was of course asked about the Serie A title race and who he thinks is going to come out on top in June.
He mentioned how Juventus were strong towards the end of last season and how Inter did not win despite being the favourites to do so.
“Juve was also strong last year, Inter were the main candidate for the Scudetto.”
He added though that he does think AC Milan can hold onto their crown and be the Serie A champions again if they play with the same spirit as last season.
“Milan can win again if they keep the spirit of last season, they had a fierce desire to impose themselves.”
The other team that the Lazio coach talked about was city rivals Roma. The Giallorossi have had a very promising summer window and he certainly fears them.
“Roma’s market makes them change their targets. Wijnaldum, Belotti, Dybala. Liverpool’s Wijnaldum is a very strong player and Dybala has been exceptional with me.”
