Capello highlights the differences between Milan, Juventus and Inter’s squads

By Ben Dixon -

The 2023-24 rendition of Serie A has seen three teams firmly glued to the top spots of the division – those being AC Milan, Inter, and Juventus. However, today, Fabio Capello has analysed the teams and highlighted a weak area within one of them. 

The race for first place, much like last season, has been dominated by one side, Inter, who have never taken their foot off the gas. In the race for the second spot, though, there has been an 18-game period where Milan and the Old Lady have battled, and currently, the Rossoneri hold that place.

The Bianconeri have a substantially higher wage budget than the Diavolo, but this has not caused a difference on the playing field, with Milan extending the difference to Massimiliano Allegri’s side to three points after their victory against Verona at the weekend.

With the race not over, Capello spoke to Gazzetta dello Sport (via Radio Rossonera) about the differences in the squads and highlighted why Juventus may fall further behind in the next few weeks.

What is the problem with Allegri’s squad?

“The real problems are the goals conceded and the lack of quality. He must move away from the trident. Allegri doesn’t have Mbappé or Vinicius up front to deploy three forwards.”

What is the difference between Milan and Inter?

“Between the two teams [Milan and Inter], there is no comparison in terms of quality. And even Milan, now second in the standings, have a more competitive squad than the Juventus team. Specifically, Inzaghi’s and Pioli’s teams create many more chances for the attackers than Juventus. And do you know why? Because the Nerazzurri have a midfield with so much quality. And Milan on the left, thanks to Theo and Leao, can invent everything over 90 minutes.

“For Juventus, the man who makes the most difference is Rabiot, and it’s no coincidence that the period of crisis has coincided with a few aches and pains of the Frenchman.”

    1. So is it Allegri’s fault that Chiesa plays worse than Yildiz, Vlahovic misses chances one after the other and Kostic has regressed to a level similar to Iling-Junior?

      He got all the way there with 6-7 U23 players that had no Serie A experience. You might not like how he plays the team, but don’t assume you know better than a coach that has received multiple accolades.

      Maybe Pirlo or Seedorf or Pippo Inzaghi would be better coaches, or maybe Adani … heck Juve fans thought that Sarri would be better only to eat their words after a season. I mean with the awesome players that Juve has, even a cab driver can be the coach… As always, time will tell…

          1. I would never call him a bad coach but it can certainly also be argued that when he was coach for them the first time when they got all their trophies juventus had a superior team to the rest of the league and probably had the best defense around or at least a top 3 in the world. He did also win a scudetto with us and then dismantled the entire team so i think there is also some question marks but he is definitely not a bad coach either but at this point i think he has topped his game.

          2. one fo the worst overrated coaches that ever came from italy. any hick with half a brain could’ve dominated with juve when he did

    2. Juventus team is awful this season. What are you even talking about?!

      Allegri over performed with them first part of season. Now they are properly crashing down. Allegri can’t work miracles and needs to step down in the summer. This is the least talented Juventus in a decade.

      1. overperformed? They dont have Eu games. It was expected they will battle for top4. And they are. The fact that they lost their momentum goes down to coach and no one else.

  1. To be fair i would gladly take both vlahovic and chiesa on reduced salaries but i think both eans around 10 mil a year so it would take some sacrifice from both of them 😛
