Lippi: 'Inter are title challengers'

Former Italy CT Marcello Lippi has claimed Inter are ‘fully in the running’ for the Scudetto after the 2-1 win against Sampdoria.

The former Inter coach has pointed out the lack of a direct meeting with Juventus but will not rule out Inter as title challengers.

“For 15 days I have said that if Inter had beaten Sampdoria, it would have been a six-point gap and therefore they are fully in the running, even if there’s no direct clash with Juventus” he told Rai Uno.

Nerazzurri need to be ruthless

Inter always like to make things difficult for themselves, as Richard Hall shares Antonio Conte’s call for them to be more merciless.

“I repeat, this is not a fitness issue.” A lack of match fitness would have been the perfect excuse, not only for his team’s second half dip against Sampdoria, but also for the slip against Napoli in the Coppa Italia semi-final. Instead, Antonio Conte was insistent that Inter need to kill of games if they are to be a special team, as they had nearly let Sampdoria back into a match they were never really involved in. This was taking full responsibility and in turn, putting it back on his players.

Conte: 'Inter have to kill games off'

Antonio Conte assures Inter are still in the Scudetto race after beating Sampdoria 2-1, but they ‘must learn to kill – in a sporting sense – the games off.’
