Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “Inter Are Big Serie A Favourites, Crossing My Fingers For Nerazzurri”

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is excited by Inter’s Serie A title charge and expects Antonio Conte’s side to get the job done this season.

The Nerazzurri are sitting at the top of the table after 23 games with a four-point lead over AC Milan, following their crushing 3-0 win in Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina.

Rummenigge enjoyed watching Conte’s side dismantle their city rivals and is hopeful his former side can finally clinch their first Scudetto in 11 years.

“I saw the derby, I liked the result,” the Bayern Munich chief executive told Sky Sport Italia on Tuesday.

“I congratulated Beppe Marotta, who is my friend.

“I’m happy because, after years of suffering, Inter are now having a happy moment.

“Now they are the big favourites and I wish with all my heart that they win it, also because that’s what the fans are asking for.

“I’m crossing my fingers.”

Rummenigge, who played for Inter for three years between 1984 and 1987, was full of praise for Romelu Lukaku after the Belgian’s fabulous performance against the Rossoneri last weekend.

Lukaku has scored 17 league goals this season and is on course with strike partner Lautaro Martinez to break numerous club records.

“Lukaku is good, he played very well against AC Milan, as he did in previous games,” Rummenigge added.

“He works a lot for the team, he scores and assists, I like him a lot.

“The assist for the first goal in the derby was exceptional, even on a technical level, a quality for which he is often criticised.”

Lukaku is remarkably still criticised for his lack of finesse and was taking no prisoners when a supporter mocked his first touch on Twitter yesterday.
