Former Milan player Dejan Savicevic: "Inter were lucky against SPAL, won with two shots on target. Milan are better than them just like Higuain is better than Icardi"
Dejan Savicevic, former Milan player, discusses the upcoming derby in an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Milan are playing good football and they are improving. Higuain has also started scoring and dragging the team on his shoulders. Suso is providing assists, building good understanding. The last games have convinced me and this game against Inter comes at the right time because they are in great form. They play better than the Nerazzurri.”
So are Milan the favorite?
“Anything can happen in the derby. Just look at Inter: I was surprised because they started out in a crisis even with a good coach like Spalletti. Against SPAL, Inter were lucky on that penalty and they won with two shots on target.”
Two shots of Icardi. Who’s better him or Higuain?
“They are two different types of forwards but I prefer Higuain because he scores goals but he participates in build-up plays. He assists his teammates and improves the entire group. Icardi is an extraordinary finisher but the team must support him.”
