Inter Milan finally wins Serie A title to break Juventus’ domination
Inter Milan has clinched its first Serie A title in over a decade on Sunday after Atalanta failed to win at Sassuolo.
Goals from Christian Eriksen and Achraf Hakimi secured a 2-0 win, on Saturday, for Inter over Crotone, a victory that moved Antonio Conte’s 14 points clear of Atalanta on Saturday.
The game between Sassuolo and Atalanta ended in a 1-1 draw, which ensured Inter wrapped up the title with four games of the season to play.
Inter has succeeded in breaking Juventus domination of the Serie A title.
“We are succeeding in toppling a kingdom that had lasted for nine years,” Inter coach Conte told reporters, referring to his team denying Juventus a tenth successive Serie A title.
“We’re aware that we can do something extraordinary because Inter haven’t won a Scudetto in 11 years, and we’re breaking up a dynasty,” added Conte, who is a former Juventus coach and led the Bianconeri to the first three of those nine consecutive league titles.
When Juventus appointed Conte, the Turin club had finished seventh in Serie A as AC Milan pipped Inter to the title in 2011.
“They were both two extremely difficult situations because I joined Juventus after getting promoted with Siena and … there wasn’t a vision in place and we weren’t fancied but beat strong sides. From then, an important cycle began,” Conte told the Inter website as he reflected on his time at Juve.
“In coming here, I made the toughest decision because many others would have found things to hide behind. I tested myself, I love big challenges and I’ve always said I’m the number one fan of the clubs that I represent.
“It wasn’t easy to win over all the fans and I understand that, but I’m convinced that I’ve always given my all for the teams that I coach. I got involved to give my best and I’m satisfied because we’re doing something extraordinary.”
