The 9-point is not a distance that cannot be pursued, according to Giorgio Karagounis. The former Inter Milan player is very optimistic the Nerazzurri can catch up and win the Scudetto from Juve.
Inter Milan’s performance has shown very good progress since the beginning of this season. No other reason was the arrival of new figures, including manager Antonio Conte, who was appointed to handle the Nerazzurri first team since last summer.
In addition, there is Romelu Lukaku who was redeemed dearly from Manchester United, he formed a deadly duo on the front lines with Lautaro Martinez. Thanks to the presence of these new comers, La Beneamata began to compete.
In fact, Inter Milan had a long seat on the throne of the standings. However, entering the second half of this season Lukaku et al’s performance seems inconsistent. As a result, they were displaced from the top position to rank 3.
In that position, Antonio Conte’s men are eight points behind Lazio, who are ranked 2nd, and 9 points behind Juventus who managed to reclaim the throne of the standings.
Nine points is not a small distance, let coach Antonio Conte himself who admitted that his team still could not compete with a Juventus classmate. However, Karagounis views that there is still an opportunity for his former club to pursue the gap.
That is because according to him the performance of Inter Milan this season is quite convincing.
I like what Inter showed this year. They almost always play well and can still fight for the Scudetto. “Now is a good season,” Karagounis told TuttoMercatoWeb.
Karagounis also praised the death duo formed by Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez. Both managed to produce 39 goals for Inter Milan in all competitions.
“They have shown that they have a good understanding but the whole team has done well and has done a good job,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, the Italian Serie A competition is currently being suspended since March 9, 2020 yesterday due to the Corona Virus pandemic. The plan is for the new league to be held again at the end of May, but it can take longer if the situation and conditions never subside.
