The Cameroon legend is backing his former club to end their 10-year wait for the Scudetto in this campaign
Inter Milan are third in the Italian top-flight standings, six points behind Maurizio Sarri’s men and five points adrift of second-placed Lazio.
The Nerazzurri are yet to win the top-flight crown since their 2009-10 triumph which Eto’o was part of.
Aware of Antonio Conte’s previous success at Juventus and Chelsea, the four-time African Player of the Year thinks Inter Milan have an edge in the title race.
“Inter will win the Scudetto,” Eto’o told Sky Sport Italia, per Football Italia.
“Conte really has not changed. He is the same coach we saw at Juventus or Chelsea, no more and no less, that is his idea of football. I am glad, because after so many highs and lows, at this moment Inter are getting the respect they deserve again.”
The 38-year-old revealed the inspiration behind the outstanding feat and why it remains special to him.
“We were playing not for us, but for the millions of Inter fans. Jose told us we had to put ourselves to work for the team, and so we did what we had to. When we won the Champions League final, the gates of heaven opened up to us,” he continued.
“What we achieved with Inter was unique and can never be repeated, but above all, I am happy that we all still remain in contact, which is rare in football. It means our experience together went beyond those matches.”
