Italy coach Mancini labels Milan as Scudetto favourites and says title race is ‘nice for the neutral’

By Euan Burns -

Italy boss Roberto Mancini has said that AC Milan are the Scudetto favourites and shown his overall pleasure at the Serie A title race.

The national team boss was speaking during an interview with Sky Sport (via Milan News) when he said that the current leaders at the top of the table have to be the favourites to win it.

“Are Milan favourites? Yes, because of the advantage in the standings. The teams that are fighting have deserved to go all the way. It was a good season,” he said.

The Serie A title will be decided on the final day of the season as there is just two points between the Rossoneri and Inter in second place.

Stefano Pioli’s Milan side will be away at Sassuolo and Inter are at home to Sampdoria.

The battle for the Scudetto has been going on all season long and only recently got whittled down to two teams. It is clear that Mancini has enjoyed the season and is looking forward to the final day showdown.

“I think it’s nice for the neutral. It’s the first time [in a while] that it comes down to the last day like this, it will be nice,” Mancini said.

Milan just need one point to win the title for the first time since 2011.
