Legendary Italian Shotstopper Praises Milan, Backs Inter to Overcome Juventus

Legendary Italian shotstopper Dino Zoff still keeps close tabs on his former clubs Juventus and Lazio, but also has his opinions on other Italian heavyweights such as Inter and Milan.

Speaking to JuventusNews24, the 1982 FIFA World Cup winner, stressed upon the fact that Juventus have every possibility to return to the pedestal of Italian football.

When quizzed whether one should be worried about Juventus’ goalscoring drought along with the defensive solidarity, he commented: “Having only the aesthetically beautiful game and then not bringing home the results is useless. This is true for a season, in the long run in sport whoever is most deserving of doing it can win.”

However, he favoured Inter to take all three points when the duo clash in Saturday’s Derby d’Italia.

“Playing in Milan I see the Nerazzurri slightly favorites, but in football, you know, anything can happen,” he said.

He also took him time to speak about Milan and Lazio.

“Lazio do not yet have a clear identity. There are certainly positive aspects but there is no clear and defined game at the moment, whereas Milan are doing great things in the league, while in the Champions League they are finding some more difficulties. But I repeat, the Rossoneri are doing well, Pioli is doing an excellent job.”

He finally gave his say on this season’s Champions League campaign, emphasizing that Bayern Munich and few English teams are ‘superior’ than the rest.

“Bayern Munich and some Englishmen seem superior to me, but I think Juve can compete with everyone. The Spaniards are currently in a period of great difficulty. But it is still too early to think about the final now,” he said.
