Ex-Nerazzurri Sporting Director Walter Sabatini: “Inter Have Rebuilt A Title-Winning Attack But AC Milan Still In Pole Position”
Former Inter, Bologna, and Salernitana Sporting Director Walter Sabatini believes that even though Inter have reunited an attacking duo capable of winning the Serie A title, defending champions AC Milan are still the favourites for it this season.
Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Sabatini argued that the return of Romelu Lukaku to Inter is one of the best signings of the season in Serie A because it brings back a Scudetto-winner, but still argued that it’s the Rossoneri’s to lose.
Inter barely missed out on the Serie A title last season, and the sense was that while they were hardly lacking in attacking quality as the league’s strongest attack, there was nevertheless a drop-off in consistency and cutting edge in the final third which was a major factor in their failure to defend their Serie A title.
Accordingly, the return of Lukaku from the season prior will be seen as a potentially major factor in the Scudetto race.
Asked about the best signings of the transfer window among Serie A clubs, Sabatini named “Lukaku, because Inter have rebuilt an attack that won the Scudetto.”
Regarding the title favourites, he named “Milan, because they’ve created a winning mentality. Maldini and Massarra have done very well.”
