Former Italy striker Christian Vieri believes Inter Milan is capable of winning the Serie A title if they can sign a quality striker.
Vieri has been impressed by Inter’s market work this summer.
But he also says: “It’s a squadron, but the team needs up front a strong centre-forward, who scores many goals.”
Vieri then added: “Only with a real striker will the Nerazzurri be able to fight for the Scudetto and the Champions League.
“Let’s see who they get…”
Vieri scored 23 goals in 49 matches for Italy between 1997 and 2005. He played for his country at the 1998 World Cup, scoring five times, and the 2002 World Cup, scoring four times.
He endured a less successful tournament at Euro 2004, whilst he missed Euro 2000 and 2006 World Cup through injury. Vieri is generally considered to be Italy’s greatest pure striker of recent times,despite strong competition, and is one of Italy’s most prolific World Cup goal scorers.
Appearing in a total of nine World Cup games in 1998 and 2002, he found the net nine times, making him one of the most feared strikers in those tournaments along with Ronaldo and Miroslav Klose, and Italy’s joint-highest World Cup goalscorer, alongside Roberto Baggio and Paolo Rossi.
He was named by Pelé as one of the 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004. Alongside Francesco Graziani, he is Italy’s ninth-highest goalscorer of all time.Copyright © 2023 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
