Inter Milan beat AC Milan by 3 goals on Sunday and topped the Serie A table with 53 points from 23 games. However, the former coach of AC Milan and Italy warned Conte's men.
Arrigo Sacchi saidInter
are fully prepared to win the Scudetto this season, but only if they follow one simple rule.
There are still too many games to say Inter have already won it, but their fate is in their own hands
," Sacchi told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"If they maintain the desire to keep improving they have everything to clinch the title, but if they get comfortable thinking they're invincible then everything could return into the balance.
"Inter beatAC Milan
with merit, but above all they are improving.
"Conte is doing a good job, the impression is that the team has gone to the next level.
"The team is improving, they are well protected at the back and are deadly on the counterattack."
, Lautaro Martinez and Nicolo Barella have been decisive up to now and Conte has managed to get a contribution from those who seemed out of the project
," Sacchi added.
and Perisic are two more solutions for Inter.
"The Dane, as often happens to players who come from the UK, needed time to understand our football and above all our defensive approach.
"In England they interpret football as it was intended by the game's founding fathers, in an attacking way.
"Perisic, on the other hand, offers Conte that balance and that extra boost on the wing that Ashley Young was struggling to guarantee."
Sacchi went on to discuss Inter's elimination from the Champions League.
Conte can indulge himself when it comes to preparation for matches
," he argued.
"I know him, I have seen his training sessions.
"Conte is among the most prepared coaches out there and also one of the shrewdest at understanding the moments of his players.
"He is capable of motivating and convincing them so he can integrate them into his style of play."
Inter are already a convincing team, but if I can give Conte some advice, I would like him to take the initiative even more,
" he said.
"Now he has some defensive certainties that would allow him to take more risks while still remaining in control of the game."
