United States coach Jurgen Klinsmann believes that Inter Milan manager Andrea Stramaccioni has the potential to lead the German's former club to success and emulate other Italian greats.
“Stramaccioni is not as famous as Giovanni Trapattoni, Arrigo Sacchi, Fabio Capello or Carlo Ancelotti, but he is making a name for himself,” Klinsmann told Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport. "He could win the Scudetto, because a coach who wins 10 games in a row has to be good and has to have a team that follows him.
Having suffered a 3-2 defeat at Atalanta on Sunday - leaving the Nerazzurri four points behind Juventus - the Milan outfit is now looking to bounce back when it hosts Cagliari this weekend. Klinsmann, who won the World Cup with West Germany in 1990, insists the Nerazzurri can be successful under the 36-year-old's guidance.
“Experience counts, but a debutant can have an innocence that can change games. Results also arrive thanks to the relationship he has with the club and with the older players in his squad. Inter seem to be on the right path, despite the loss at Atalanta.”
Klinsmann appeared 95 times as a striker for Inter from 1989-1992, scoring 34 goals for the club.
