Materazzi: ‘Inter can target Scudetto’

Marco Materazzi says Inter can ‘target the Scudetto’ and that Roberto Mancini is ‘the right person’ to make it happen.

The former Nerazzurri defender, who now manages Indian club Chennaiyin, has been impressed by the club’s 100 per cent winning start to the season.

"Mancini is a very reliable Coach, he was the right person to make the team return to being champions,” said Materazzi to Radio 1.

“I think about Jovetic, who was greatest signing of the summer transfer market.

“The results speak for Mancio, even though last year things didn’t go well.

“As a real English-style manager, he’s directed all the club’s decisions over the summer and he is the cornerstone of the new Inter project.

"First of all, they must target the top two places in the league, which would allow them to avoid the qualifiers and get back in the Champions League which is crucial.

“Then, match after match, you will see how far can this team can go. But if your name is Inter you can always target the Scudetto.

“Ranocchia must continue to give everything in training as I believe he always has.

“He must continue to be captain over all, although knowing Mancini, it will be difficult for the lineup to change seeing as things are going well.

“Also, it’s right not to change right now. Unfortunately for him, there are no cups, so he will have fewer chances to get himself ready.”
