Capello gives thoughts on Scudetto race and what could cost some teams

By Akhil Prasad -

Former managerial great Fabio Capello has given his verdict on what he thinks is not yet a two-horse race for the Scudetto this season.

The football pundit spoke to the Sky Calcio Show after Inter played out Juventus to a 1-1 draw at the Giuseppe Meazza. The Derby d’Italia giants met in a crucial Serie A encounter that marginally dictated the league standings.

Speaking to the microphones of the sports channel (via MilanNews) after the derby match and the Roma-Napoli game, Capello commented on managers being too vocal on the touchline and subsequently being sent for their actions – with Roma coach Jose Mourinho being sent off for his protests.

“It is not possible to see four coaches sent off in one day, it is the only place in the world where this happens. Evidently something has broken in the relationship between coaches and referees. Constantly whistling conveys anxiety, they interrupt the game too much,” said Capello.

The former Milan and Real Madrid manager finally gave his say on the 2021/22 Serie A title race, saying he expects two teams to fight until the end for the championship.

He said: “Two-team fight? No, it is still too early. Then we saw that the teams involved in the cups can suffer a bit. I see Inter more than ever in the running for the Scudetto. However, in my opinion Napoli remains the most dangerous team.”

Napoli remain unbeaten in the league after their stalemate draw with Roma, maintaining their position on top of Serie A standings with 25 points, the same as Milan. The Rossoneri sit in second place with a goal difference of 13, three less than Napoli.
