SPAL coach Domenico Di Carlo feels that Inter Milan are still the favourites to win the Serie A title next season.

Speaking to TMW Radio, via FCInterNews, the coach gave his thoughts on the upcoming title race.

Inter did not just win the Serie A title last season. They did so in utterly dominant fashion.

As Napoli had done in the previous campaign, the Nerazzurri amassed a gap over second place that meant that they had effectively wrapped up the title in March.

Nineteen points separated Inter from their city rivals AC Milan who were second in the table.

Therefore, the expectation will undeniably be that Inter head into next season as favourites to win the title again. It couldn’t be otherwise.

But in the meantime, Inter’s big rivals have reacted. They now know exactly how big the gap is, and the need to work proactively to make it up.

In the case of Juventus, they have brought Thiago Motta in as coach. And they’ve shown a willingness to spend big on a new project.

Meanwhile, it is a similar story at Napoli. The Partenopei are ready for an ambitious transfer window to support Antonio Conte following a shocking title defense last season.

Then, there are the likes of AC Milan, Lazio, and Atalanta all ready to nip at Inter’s heels.

Di Carlo: “Inter Milan Still Favourites For Serie A Title”

Inter certainly are not going to be complacent or take anything for granted.

The likelihood that it will be another season in whch Inter have virtually wrapped it up by March seems low.

But at the same time, the Nerazzurri have a lot to build on.

SPAL coach Di Carlo said that “Inter start next season as favourites to win the title again.”

“They’ve put their faith in Inzaghi. Even when things haven’t been going well.”

Di Carlo anticipated that “Juve will find new motivation under Thiago Motta. And a new way of working.”

He further predicted that “Napoli will be the surprise package of the season.”

“I’m convinced that they’ll want redemption after not being up to par last season.”
