Napoli are Juventus' main threat - Zola backing former club to be Serie A challengers

The ex-Partenopei player believes the Naples club are The Old Lady's biggest contenders along with Roma, but feels Milan and Inter are not strong enough to challenge
Watford coach Gianfranco Zola believes Napoli are Juventus' main obstacle in retaining their Serie A title.

The ex-Azzurri player, who spent four years in Naples as a player, does not think Milan or Inter are strong enough to challenge, but feels Roma could also be darkhorses in the race for the Scudetto.

"Because Milan did not reinforce and Inter don't seem superior to their status last season, there could be room for teams like Napoli and Roma," the former Chelsea star told Il Mattino.

Milan are currently reeling from the losses of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva, while Inter have lost long-standing veterans in Maicon and Julio Cesar.

He is also impressed with the form of 21-year-old Lorenzo Insigne, who has come in to fill the void caused by Ezequiel Lavezzi's departure to Paris Saint-Germain.

"I saw him play or Pescara last season. I like him a great deal and hope he has the chance to play and grow at Napoli," stated Zola.
