Inzaghi: 'Juve have no competitors'

Former Milan Coach Filippo Inzaghi claims 'there is no Juventus challenger', but wishes luck to Lazio and Milan.

Super Pippo only had one year managing the Rossoneri bench, but it was enough to kick-start a career as a Coach and give him a sense of how football tactics work from the sidelines.

“I've got an idea of the championship and I follow Serie A,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport, “if only because there's Milan, who are my history and whom I follow with love. I wish [Coach Vincenzo] Montella all the best.

“Lazio are trained by my brother, whom I believe is a great Coach. Unfortunately they lost a great player like Candreva, and they can't count on Keita [Balde Diao] right now.

“But by winning the first game and playing well against Juve, they are showing their worth.

“I follow more or less everyone. I think there is no challenger to Juventus this year, they are on a different level compared to everyone else.

“Starting from the three defenders and the goalkeeper, it's almost impossible to score a goal against them, and now they have top-scorer Higuain too.

“So I think there's little contest in the championship, although Napoli reinforced their squad and signed many interesting young players.

“I think it's going to be a balanced contest for the second place, but the Scudetto is already assigned.

“Paul Pogba? At those prices I too would have sold him.”

Inzaghi's main focus right now, however, is not on Serie A, but on his own Lega Pro club Venezia.

“Those who think this is an easy championship are dead wrong, it's going to be tough.”
