Italy national team manager Roberto Mancini has made his 2019-2020 Italian Lega Serie A predictions ahead of the start of the campaign.

If there’s one man who really knows the Italian Lega Serie A is Roberto Mancini.

The Italy national team manager has to watch all the football he can so he can select the best players to represent the country.

And ahead of the start of the 2019-2020 campaign, Mancini talks about his predictions for the competition.

“It’s too early to say who will win the Scudetto, but Juventus are by far the best team,” he was quoted by Football Italia.

“Let’s not forget that they’ve been winning for the last eight years and have also strengthened: Inter have too, but Juventus haven’t stopped.”

“I see Napoli as dangerous: they have players who have been playing together for years now, while Inter has already changed 4-5 and have lost some important players like Icardi and Perisic,” he added.

“They need a bit of time before they can be assessed, but they’re certainly improving. For now, I’m going with Juve, Napoli, and Inter in that order.”

Mancini commented: “Fonseca is a good coach: he has the Portuguese football philosophy and a brilliant idea of how to play the game.”

“It’s true that Shakhtar almost always wins in Ukraine, but his teams have always played good football.”

“FFP is a problem for Milan: it forces you to do little on the market, even if you have to give up the Europa League,” he said.

“However, if you change coach, having more time to train can be an advantage as you can acquire your thoughts better: Milan can be the surprise packages.”
