Former England, Real Madrid, and A.C. Milan manager, Fabio Capello, has talked about Napoli’s chances to win Serie A this season, as well as how the team stacks up against A.C. Milan.

Capello talked about the team he is most surprised by in the current season.
“Without a doubt Milan. Because in the summer I was clear: if De Laurentiis does not sell Koulibaly or one of his big names, he is one of the big favorites for the Scudetto. For Milan, on the other hand, losing Donnarumma and Calhanoglu could have been a bad psychological blow. to overcome. But the management moved well and found valid substitutes. “
Fabio Capello also spoke about Napoli. He says that he was impressed with Luciano Spalletti’s work to change the fortunes of the team. However, Capello also thinks that the team’s current excitement could work against them in the long term.
Capello singled-out two Napoli players, Frank Zambo Anguissa and Victor Osimhen. He believes that that the midfielder, particularly, has excellent individual qualities. “
Anguissa makes a difference, he helps his teammates, creates outlets for others, and constantly puts the opposing defenses in difficulty, who must always be careful of him and his speed.”
