Former Inter and Lazio midfielder Dejan Stankovic spoke about the Scudetto battle in Serie A but believes the Friedkins must ‘complete the Roma squad’ to get the most out of Jose Mourinho.
The former Serbia international spent 15 years as a player in Serie A between 1998 and 2013 and picked up six Scudetti and six Coppa Italia. He was also part of the Treble winning Inter side in 2009-10.
The current Red Star Belgrade coach was asked about the current Scudetto battle in Serie A and said Inter are fighting Milan, Juve and Napoli for the title, but doesn’t want to rule out Lazio and Roma.
“Inter will battle Milan, Juve and Napoli, who started very strong,” Stankovic told TMW. “Coach Spalletti, yes, you know, he always makes his teams play great football.
“Let’s not forget my compatriot Milinkovic-Savic’s Lazio. I love Sergej to death, at Lazio as well as in the national team, he shows an almost embarrassing confidence and quality.
“He shows and makes himself noticed on the pitch, as well as scoring important goals like in the derby.
“In Rome they love him and just have to rest assured: the ups and downs are always there in football, they also happened to me.
“Then keep an eye on Roma. I already see Mourinho’s character, but for his type of football they still need something in terms of signings. The Friedkins must complete the squad.”
