Capello is also keen to see Milan coach Stefano Pioli receive better press.
“He has huge merits that in my opinion aren't fully recognised," Capello told Corriere della Sera.
“He needed time and trust. Keeping him this summer was the right decision and he proves it now."
“Milan are a candidate for the Scudetto. Everyone can dream big, think big. And Milan can do it now. The win against Napoli was an impressive show of strength.
“But the win against Fiorentina surprised me too. The ease and their determination. Milan imposed themselves as a great side, without suffering and controlling the game like the great teams do.
“Without anxiety and above all, without [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic.
“Inter and Juve have a technical background and choices that will clearly bring them back to being protagonists, they have big and rich squads.
“But Milan, trust me, are up there because they deserve it and they can stay there until the end."
