Inter are Serie A favorites, says former Inter player Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. He is impressed with the players’ hard work and top-class team effort. The Nerazzurri have come across several ups and downs in the past season. However, they are in a strong position at the moment. Conte has found balance with his squad which is a positive step towards the Scudetto. Inter are sitting on top of the Serie A table, four points ahead of City rivals AC Milan.
The Italian giants have also struggled financially over the past year. The coronavirus pandemic hit even the massive clubs and put them in a financial constraint. Furthermore, it got worse as Inter had made huge signings in the summer of 2019. So much so that some players’ wages have not been paid. However, owners Suning have assured that the market will be more stable this year.
Inter are big Serie A favorites who may bag the Scudetto this year
Rummenigge praised Inter players after the overpowering 3-0 win in Sunday’s derby Della Madonnina. He praised Lukaku for his performance against the Rossoneri last week. The Belgian has scored 17 league goals this season and is all set to break several records with partner striker Lautaro. The duo together is referred to as Lula and they’ve been extraordinary for Inter.
Inter have also got Eriksen in the midfield now. The Dane was out of favour for Conte ever since he joined Inter in the 2018-19 season. He came during the pandemic when Lombardy was one of the worst-hit regions in Italy. Further, he failed to settle in Conte’s system due to the language barrier and different style of play. However, after his stunning derby goal last month, Conte has included Eriksen in the squad. The two are finally getting along as Conte expressed his happiness for Eriksen’s performances. On the other hand, Barella is another crucial player for Inter. He has been consistent with his performances for the Nerazzurri. Thus, Inter are in a position to win the Scudetto this year and Conte will not leave a single chance for it.
