The 33-year-old former Napoli defender says the race for Serie A is too early to predict and should only be judged at the halfway point of the season
Inter defender Hugo Campagnaro believes it is too early to judge whether his side will challenge for the Serie A title this season.
The 33-year-old, who joined the Nerazzurri from Napoli in the summer, believes predicting the eventual Scudetto winner is pointless this soon in the campaign.
“It’s too early to talk about the Scudetto,” Campagnaro told Sky.
“You need to play the entire first round of matches before you can see how the league is taking shape.
“So far, however, we have shown that we can handle playing against anyone, even the sides who were at the top last season.”
Inter currently lie in fourth place in the table, having won four and drawn two of their six league games so far. The Nerazzurri remain unbeaten along with Roma, Napoli and Juventus in one of the most competitive starts to an Italian top flight campaign in recent times.
Campagnaro signed a two-year deal with Inter in July. He has won 11 caps for Argentina since making his debut in 2012.
