AC Milan coach Allegri rates Inter as their closest title rivals

AC Milan boss Max Allegri expects Inter Milan to be their biggest title challengers this season.

Allegri made the claim before his side's departure for China ahead of the Italian Super Cup clash against Inter on Saturday 6 August.

"Despite the fact that other sides have strengthened, I think that Inter and ourselves will be favourites for the championship," he said.

"We've worked reasonably well in these weeks," continued the former Cagliari tactician.

"It will be important to have the right concentration in Beijing, because we are playing for the first trophy of the season and because it is against Inter.

"It'll be tough, mentally and physically, but it wouldn't be a bad start to the season if we win this one…"
