USA boss Jurgen Klinsmann believes that the inexperienced Andrea Stramaccioni could lead Inter to the Scudetto this season.
Stramaccioni was promoted from the youth set-up in March and his side are currently second in the table – four points behind champions Juventus.
“Stramaccioni is not as famous as Giovanni Trapattoni or Arrigo Sacchi, Fabio Capello or Carlo Ancelotti, but he is making a name for himself,” the German told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“He could win the Scudetto because a Coach who wins 10 games in a row has to be good and has to have a team that follows him.
“Experience counts, but a debutant can have an innocence that is needed to make changes.
“Results also arrive thanks to the relationship he has with the club and with the older players in his squad.
“Inter seem to be on the right path, despite the loss at Atalanta.”
The former international striker joined Inter as a player in 1989 before his 1992 switch to Monaco.
