Inter Milan: Italian giants win first Serie A for 11 years

 

Inter Milan have won their first Serie A title in 11 years after second-placed Atalanta drew with Sassuolo.

The Milan giants are 13 points clear after Saturday’s 2-0  win at Crotone with four games to go.

Inter finished second to Juventus by a point last season, but Antonio Conte has ended Juve’s run of nine straight titles in his second season in charge.

It is Inter’s first Scudetto since Jose Mourinho won both Serie A and the Champions League in 2010.

The title is Conte’s fourth Serie A title, after winning the league in three consecutive seasons during his spell as manager of Juventus between 2011 and 2014.

He also won the Premier League in his first season at Chelsea in 2017.

“This is one of the most important successes of my career,” the 51-year-old told Italian television station Rai.

“Deciding to join Inter was not easy, just when the team was not equipped to win immediately.

“Furthermore, the opponent was Juventus for whom I had worked for a long time, who had dominated for nine years. Today we can say that our sacrifices have paid off.”

But Conte would not be drawn on his future, with his contract set to expire in 12 months’ time.

“At the end of the season we will make the appropriate evaluation,” he said.

“We have done something extraordinary and I want to enjoy this moment.
