“Inter always above everyone in Serie A”
Outgoing Juventus captain Girogio Chiellini believes Inter are still the strongest team in Serie A.
Speaking to Italian TV channel Radio Anch’io Lo Sport, Chiellini felt that even though the Nerazzurri narrowly missed out on the Scudetto in the past season, they are still the measuring stick of the Italian elite.
Inter stumbled at crucial moments in the season to allow city rivals AC Milan to propel them to the Serie A title, but for long stretches their quality was there for all to see as they looked downright dominant against even the strongest opposition in the league.
Moreover, the Nerazzurri have propelled rivals Juventus to the Supercoppa Italiana and Coppa Italia to ensure they don’t end the season without a trophy.
Chiellini believes that, purely in terms of quality on the pitch, Inter were and still are the outstanding team in Italian football.
“I think Inter are ahead of everyone despite the Scudetto defeat,” he said. “I think they are a cut above everyone else.”
“Talking today, we are still talking about last season, because few players left yet,” he added. “The question will have to be asked again in September.”
