Zamorano: ‘Nobody has Inter’s strikers’

Ivan Zamorano hopes this can be the season Inter win the Scudetto, as they have the best striker selection in Europe and only centre-forwards are at Romelu Lukaku’s level.

The former hitman confessed to La Gazzetta dello Sport that he has never stopped watching the Nerazzurri, even more so now that Chile internationals Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sanchez are at the club.

“Vidal might be 33, but if he can make the difference, then his age is irrelevant. His contract ends in 2023 and I hope to see him continue with our club colours,” said Zamorano.

“Alexis Sanchez has finally reached his peak form, physically and mentally. If he’s in good shape, there is no stopping him. It’s a pity he is only an alternative and not first choice, but then he is up against Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku…

“I struggle to see another team in Europe with three such formidable strikers. Not even Barcelona, Real Madrid or Juventus can match Inter. As a former forward, I’d love to see all three play together, but it depends on the game and the opponent.

“Lukaku really is a top player now. If we are talking about purely centre-forwards, only Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland are at his level.”

Zamorano is also impressed by Inter coach Conte, who has instilled a new attitude in the team.

“Antonio is a hard worker, so I really don’t care if he is a symbol of Juventus or won a great deal with them. I don’t want a fan, I want a coach, a professional who can get the best out of his squad.

“His mission is simply to bring the Scudetto back to Milan.”
