Zdenek Zeman has always been one of their harshest critics, but says “Juventus deserve to be top of the table” ahead of Milan.
The current Pescara Coach famously blasted the Bianconeri on numerous occasions and was asked to comment on the Scudetto race.
“Juve are hungrier,” he told news agency ANSA. “Up until a few weeks ago I thought Milan were stronger, but the Bianconeri are doing very well.
“Juventus are a younger team and perhaps have more desire to win this season. In recent games I saw Juve were hungrier for points.
“They deserve to be top of the table. However, Milan have many injuries and they need to figure out why that is.”
Only one point separates the two sides in the Serie A standings.
