AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng is adamant they can win the Scudetto this season.

Boateng has defended the quality of the squad.

"Many people think we are not as competitive as in the past, but they are wrong. Alright, there are fewer marquee names, but still players of great talent like Stephan El Shaarawy, Mario Balotelli and Riccardo Montolivo, for example. You can be sure, Milan will be up there," Boateng told .

"I have changed my style of play recently. Before coming to Milan I was primarily a defensive midfielder, but in Italy I have become a trequartista. I know I still have to improve in certain respects, such as my finishing, but I'm working on it."
