AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists it's too early to state they're Inter's main Scudetto rivals.

"The win over Atalanta was very precious," Galliani declared. "But it's too early to call us the anti-Inter. There are lots of other teams who are doing very well, like Fiorentina, Udinese and Napoli.

"They aren't small teams but average to big ones and they can chase us and Inter all the way. But I can't deny that it's nice to be at the top and to breathe the air at the summit after two years of being so far back.

"It's nice to be so close to the Nerazzurri and to fight for the objective that we lost too early in the last two seasons."
