Ex-Italy international Fabio Cannavaro said former club Inter and AC Milan need time before they can challenge for Serie A honours.

Inter and Milan have taken a back seat to rivals Juventus, who are seeking a seventh successive Scudetto this term, but both clubs are hopeful of returning to the top of Italian football.

"But it will need time in order for them to organise themselves.

"Napoli, for example, have arrived at their level after 10-12 years."
