Milito selects Scudetto candidates

Inter’s Diego Milito has named his favourites for the Scudetto – and he’s not included his own Beneamata.

“I’ll say three names,” he noted in an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport. “Juventus, Roma and Napoli.

“Juventus are the reigning champions and they have an important squad. They have won five of their six games so far in the League and they are just two points adrift of a Roma side who have made an incredible start.

“To talk about a Juventus crisis [after their Champions League results] seems exaggerated because Antonio Conte’s team remain a difficult side for anyone to beat.”

Milito’s outfit will entertain Roma this weekend, while he knows all about the ability of Napoli boss Rafael Benitez.

“It was a difficult moment when he arrived at Inter,” the Argentine added. “The team had won everything and it was complicated to repeat that success.

“He tried to change a lot from the two years with Jose Mourinho, but it went badly – also because of the injuries at the time.

“But nobody should forget that we won two titles with him. We should be thankful for what he did on the Inter bench.”
