Legendary former Nerazzurri midfielder Dejan Stankovic feels that the current Inter Milan team is similar to the one that won the Treble.

The Serb spoke to Italian broadcaster RAI 2, via FCInter1908, and noted that the strength of the current dressing room reminds him of the one that won the Champions League in 2010.

As far as benchmarks go, the 2009-10 season is certainly a strong one for Inter.

That campaign saw the Nerazzurri win the Serie A title, the Coppa Italia, and the Champions League.

Inter have certainly not reached those heights again since.

There have been great moments. These have included winning the league title during the 2020-21 season. And last campaign, the Nerazzurri reached the Champions League final.

This time around, Inter are pushing to win the Serie A title once again. They are top of the league table at the moment.

And there is also very much the Champions League to fight for. Inter face Atletico Madrid in the round of sixteen next month.

Dejan Stankovic: This Inter Similar To Treble Side

Asked whether he sees similarities between this Inter team and the one that won the Treble, Stankovic replied “Yes. Because this is a very mature group.”

“In Mourinho’s team we were almost all over thirty,” he noted.

“Very professional, very direct. There were no problems between us, the dressing room was the strong point for us.”

The Serb said that “This Inter reminds me of those good times.”

“Where the dressing room solved every problem,” he looked back.

“They have a coach who knows the strengths and weaknesses of the guys he has at his disposal,” Stankovic said of Simone Inzaghi.

“They’ve been together for a long time, which is important for success.”

And Stankovic also gave his thoughts on the Serie A title race between Inter and Juventus.

“Inter looked overwhelming and dominant against Monza to me,” the former midfielder and current coach said.

“And that was away at a tough, well-coached team.”

“They’ll go head-to-head for it,” Stankovic said.

“Juventus certainly have a small advantage in not having European football. Now as a coach I can really see how big of a difference it makes when you have to play every three days.”

“But Inter can’t escape the role of favourites,” Stankovic argued.

“They look great to me.”

He argued that “Simone Inzaghi has a very organized group, who can virtually play by heart. For me, they’re the favourites.”
