Former AC Milan captain Riccardo Montolivo applauds Inter Milan following their recent exploits, while also reserving special praise for Beppe Marotta.
The Nerazzurri started the year by lifting the Italian Super Cup trophy in Saudi Arabia. This first triumph of the season has seemingly opened their appetite.
Since returning to Italian soil, Simone Inzaghi’s men have earned three valuable wins over Fiorentina, Juventus and most recently AS Roma.
The win over the Bianconerr was particularly significant. That fixture pitted them against their direct Scudetto rivals.
This weekend, Inter earned a come-from-behind victory over their Roman hosts to open a seven-point gap on top of the Serie A table.
The Beneamata found themselves trailing 1-2 by halftime, but Marcus Thuram led a second-half comeback. The encounter ended in a 4-2 win in favor of the visitors.
For his part, Montolivo praised Inter for their performances against the Giallorossi.
The retired midfielder noted great improvements in their game compared to two years ago when they squandered their lead in the table, giving the Scudetto away to Milan.
“Inzaghi’s team is mature and aware,” said Montolivo during his appearance on DAZN via FcInter1908.
“It is no longer the same team from two years ago which lost the scudetto to AC Milan despite having an important lead at one point.
“Inter won the Super Cup, then returned to Italy with a game less in Serie A. They had difficult tests in the shape of Juve and Roma. But they managed to overcome it and earn important wins.”

Therefore, the former AC Milan and Fiorentina star gave the Nerazzurri 99% odds to win the league.
“The Scudetto bar? For me, Inter has a 99% chance of winning the title this season. They have been the ultimate favorites since Day One.”
So if you’re a fan of football betting – or as they say in Indonesia, judi bola – wagering on Inter to win the Scudetto title at the end of the season would be the safest bet.
Finally, Montolivo lauded Inter CEO Beppe Marotta for the work he conducted since taking charge of the club.
The 39-year-old describes the former Sampdoria and Juventus executive as a managerial champion.
“When Marotta arrived at Inter, he brought order to all sectors. He is a champion at a managerial level.
“Nevertheless, the players and the technical staff all deserve credits.”
