Capello: Lukaku and Hakimi struggles expose Serie A

Former Italy coach Fabio Capello says the struggles of two former Inter Milan stars exposes the weaknesses in Serie A.

Romelu Lukaku left for Chelsea last summer, while Achraf Hakimi was sold to PSG - and both Scudetto winners have battled for form this season.

"We should think about one thing: Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi are struggling in leagues that are more competitive than Serie A, while Abraham wasn't this strong in England," he said.

“The ball isn't moved quickly enough in Italy, so it's easy to intercept it. We suffer the pressing because we never overcome it with one touch, we always need three.

"We should train all day on the technique, but we focus on tactics instead."
