Andrea Ranocchia insists it is too soon to say whether Inter have what it takes to challenge Juventus for the Serie A title this term.
The Nerazzurri started the 2013-14 campaign Scudetto in fine fashion as they beat Genoa 2-0 at the weekend, following on from a 4-0 win over Citadella in the Coppa Italia, but Ranocchia is refusing to get carried away.
"Do we feel up to Juventus’ level? Juventus are strong and we have a new group with lots of young players. In order to say that we’re at their level we will have to wait until the end of the season to see where we stand," Ranocchia told Sky Sport Italia.
"Can we mention the word Scudetto? After the below par seasons in recent years we have to work rather than talk.
"I'm always of the opinion that Inter have to work game after game, week after week, and learn from our mistakes."
Inter will be looking to maintain their 100 per cent record away against Catania on Sunday.
