England coach Fabio Capello believes former club AC Milan can challenge for the title this season.

Capello is convinced the acquisitions of Robinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have turned Milan into contenders.

He said: "Inter does not surprise me, the play of Cesena is great, but we'll see if they can remain at the top when they face, inevitably, the usual big teams, like Milan, Juventus and AS Roma.

"How is the new Milan? They can make the big leap with the two recent acquisitions, Robinho and Ibrahimovic.

"(Max) Allegri only needs to work, so let's give him time. Did they really need Ibra? He is needed by all teams."
