Zapata: Milan strong enough

Cristian Zapata is convinced Milan will challenge Juventus for the Serie A title in the 2013-14 campaign.

The Rossoneri finished third last season, a massive 15 points behind the Old Lady after the Diavolo’s sluggish start to the campaign.

“We have to immediately begin well,” the Colombian centre-back told Sky Sport Italia. “The aim is to improve next season and we are all working hard for that.

“More reinforcements? This team is already very strong as it is, we will be fighting for the Scudetto,” he assured.

The Diavolo, who have taken up their option to sign Zapata outright from Villarreal, have also done deals for Riccardo Saponara, Jherson Vergara and Andrea Poli.
