Facing criticism for their ponderous style of play under Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus has gathered 9 points in their five opening Serie A matches, two wins, and three draws.
Bringing in Paul Pogba,Angel Di Maria
, Gleison Bremer, Filip Kostic, andLeandro Paredes
, the Bianconeri had a successful transfer window with their former boss,Fabio Capelo
impressed by their recruitment.
However, the Italian coach doesn’t seeJuventus
as a favorite for theScudetto
this season. He toldSportWeek
"Looking at the names, Juventus were the winners.
"They had a top summer with Di Maria, Pogba, Paredes, all champions that other teams don't have. Bremer is better than de Ligt on a defensive level.
"Juve have invested in quality, catching up with Inter and Milan. Without the new players they're already among the top teams, while the others lost players."
Discussing other title contenders, the formerEngland national team
are still the favorites despite losing the title in the last game of the last season to their rivals,Milan
Asked who he finds as the favorites to win the Serie A title this season, Capello said:
"It's still Inter, even though they lost [Ivan] Perisic and have [Romelu] Lukaku injured. The Belgian is the market coup of the summer.
"Milan made an important effort for [Charles] De Ketelaere, whom I confess I don't know.
"Napoli have replaced the departing players with good alternatives. Lazio will also be one to watch."
