Galliani: “Milan aren’t favourites”

Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani has shot down Antonio Conte’s claims that the Rossoneri are favourites for the Scudetto.

The Juventus boss recently suggested that the Diavolo were in pole position for the title despite the fact that his Old Lady side lead the standings.

“Conte is being crafty when he says certain things,” Galliani told the Gazzetta dello Sport. “He’s saying as much to keep the attention off his side.

“I don’t see why we would be favourites. With all these injuries that we have at the minute we can’t be any more…”

After placing the Bianconeri in pole position for the title, the San Siro official seemed to rule out an Inter recovery in the championship.

“Sport is made up of cycles,” he noted. “Perhaps they’ll return to winning ways in a few years from now.”

Juve lead Milan by a point in the standings, but the leaders also have a game in hand. Inter are fifth, nine points behind the Bianconeri.
