Esteban Cambiasso has goaded city neighbours Milan and fierce rivals Juventus following Inter’s victory in the Trofeo TIM on Friday evening.
The Argetine midfielder, who was a surprise omission from Diego Maradona’s World Cup squad this summer, helped his side to a 3-2 victory on penalty kicks over the Rossoneri and was not particularly complimentary about Massimiliano Allegri’s side in the aftermath of the encounter.
“Have AC Milan and Juventus improved? I think not,” he is quoted as saying by Milannews.it.
Romanian defender Cristian Chivu was equally unimpressed by the Diavoli during the scoreless encounter. “There is still a gap; tonight we were winning the derby with a lot of kids on the field,” he smiled.
Wesley Sneijder, who was named the top player in the Goal.com 50 earlier this week, showed a little more graciousness in victory. “Milan? Still fearful; we are aware of our strengths but we do not snub anyone,” the Dutchman said.
All three sides still have two weeks of fine-tuning to enjoy before Serie A hostilities start on August 28.
