Italy's legendary goalkeeper, Paliuca, who has played 234 times for Inter Milan in the player era, looked forward to the Milan derby this weekend in an interview. He thinks this is a 50-50 contest. At the same time, Paljuka also said that he believes his old club is the biggest favorite to win the Serie A championship this season.
"I know the importance of the Milan derby, and I am also very happy that I have never lost the Milan derby as a player." Paliuca, now 53, said.
"Which former teammate is most excited about Derby? Bergomi, he grew up in Inter Milan’s youth camp. He was very serious before every Milan derby. The rest of us faced with a professional attitude, but the Milan Derby faced Bell For Gomi, it means the most."
"Who will be more dominant in the next Milan derby? Milan is now at the top of the standings, Ibrahimovic has returned to the team, and Inter Milan has 6 players diagnosed with the new crown. I think the game will be 50-50. Derby did not win the favorite. Inter Milan hasn’t lost the Milan Derby in Serie A in 4 years, so I think they have to be cautious because the defeat will happen sooner or later. Of course I hope Inter will win, but they are not in the best situation at the moment."
"Are there weaknesses in Milan? I don't think they have many weaknesses. Maybe they lack Ibrahimovic's substitute. Ibrahimovic will definitely play by then, but his current physical condition is not 100%. Milan has Rebic, but he is still Heal the injury. In any case, Pioli has done a very good job, and everyone has to dedicate the applause to Maldini. He built a good team without spending too much money."
"What do you think of Handanovic's recent performance? I think his condition has slipped after the rematch last season. Before that, he was almost invincible. What we see now is not the real Handa, but he can Go back to your normal level."
"In what areas do you think Conte can do better? Last season he almost completed a successful season. Very unlucky he lost the Europa League final. Now in my opinion, Inter Milan is the new season of Serie A The biggest favorite of the championship, they have a strong and complete team. They have no weaknesses and the players are very experienced. I think Inter Milan is the most likely to win the Serie A championship this season."
"Eriksson? He joined the team in January, maybe Conte didn't think he was suitable for him at the time. Eriksson used to play in the Premier League, which is different from Serie A. Conte played against the team last season. There is a higher requirement for balance. He also often sends Eriksson out in the final 30 minutes of the game when his opponent's physical fitness drops. In any case, it is Conte who makes the final decision."
