Gary Medel believes Inter can “challenge for the title” after going top thanks to a 1-0 win over Roma.
The Chile international got his first goal in a Nerazzurri jersey and it proved decisive at San Siro.
“I am very happy for the goal and the victory. We knew this was an important match that could allow us to leapfrog them to the top of the table,” he told Sky Sport Italia and Mediaset Premium.
“I am happy for the fans and my teammates. Mauro Icardi dropped? There are many players here, the most important thing is the team.
“Scudetto? Yes, I think we’ve got a great team that can challenge for the title and we can be in the top spots, but we have to take it one step at a time.
“We played very well in defence, controlled Roma players like Mohamed Salah and Gervinho thanks to Yuto Nagatomo and Danilo D’Ambrosio’s hard work.”
