The creative midfielder feels the Serie A giants can fight for top honours in 2012-13, and has little doubt that their hard work on the training pitch will pay offRicky Alvarez is confident that Inter have what it takes to challenge for top honours this term as a result of his side's plethora of individual quality.
The Nerazzurri went through a difficult 2011-12 campaign as they had to settle for sixth spot in the Serie A table, but the attacking midfielder feels they have the quality to do better this season.
"I really like this Inter because we have players with a lot of quality. I am confident that we can do well this season," Alvarez stated to Sky Sport Italia.
"We have some very strong new players. We will now have to get used to each other and see how we function as a team.
"We still need to work on certain aspects of our game and have to improve. We're working hard in training, though, to do just that."
Inter have collected three points from their opening two league games.
