Argentinian striker doesn’t include the Nerazzurri though.
Inter Milan striker Diego Milito has revealed his three Scudetto contenders for this season, but he hasn’t included the Nerazzurri in his thinking.
Walter Mazzarri’s side have made a promising start to the campaign, and without any European distractions this year they will be hoping to break into the top three in Serie A.
While that is Milito’s objective for the season, he has also cast his eye on their rivals and discussed who are his genuine title candidates for the year ahead.
“I’ll say three names,” he noted in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport as reported by Football Italia. “Juventus, Roma and Napoli.”
Milito was also complimentary of bitter rivals Juve, claiming that talk of Antonio Conte’s side being in a crisis is exaggerated after a few poor results in Europe.
The veteran striker admits that he still thinks the Old Lady will be competing for a third consecutive title this year as they remain difficult to beat, and have also made an impressive start to the campaign with five wins in six games.
However, the majority of criticism has been aimed at their performances in Europe, where they have been held to draws by FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray.
Meanwhile, Milito also had kind words for former boss Rafa Benitez, while the Spaniard is now coaching rivals Napoli, he had a generally disappointing spell in charge of the Nerazzurri back in 2010 in the post Jose Mourinho era.
“It was a difficult moment when he arrived at Inter,” Milito 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,” he concluded.
Benitez will be amongst the group of coaches hoping to secure the Serie A title this season, with Inter potentially involved in the race despite Milito neglecting to mention them.
