After his long experience in China as a technical commissioner, Marcello Lippi – world champion with Italy in 2006 – returns to appear on Italian football. In an interview with Corriere della Sera , the Tuscan coach talked about the challenge between Inter and Juventus and the return of Conte to Serie A:
SCUDETTO FIGHT – "Inter is not a surprise: it started with great determination, the one transmitted by its commander Conte, very good at motivating the group. He is doing very well and keeps up with Juve, which for me is still the favorite. Everyone thought of the third wheel, but got lost on the road ".
COUNT – "Of course, it's not just grit. The psychological motivations for being on an opponent like Juve are still an important factor. But Inter is high because it has game organization and quality".
WORDS A L'EQUIPE – "Conte does not offend anyone and says what he thinks. I was rather struck by the fact that he almost admitted regretting his return to Italy. Even when I came back from abroad I found a big difference: not it will happen, but if after China I should come back it will certainly not be Italy ".
CHAMPIONS – "Winning helps to win. With so many commitments it is not easy but I assume that Conte's requests for January will be satisfied. Going forward increases confidence, self-esteem and enthusiasm. All key elements to win".
