Sucddetto for the history book:
In 2010, when Nerrazurri won the historic European treble, that cursed them for a decade to come. After a long wait of 11 years, the Serie A trophy finally returns to San Siro. Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan ironically won the competition with 4 games still in hand. This one feels special! After a decade-long trophy drought, things are finally getting better for the Nerazzurri, and looking at their brilliance, we can say it’s just getting started yet! Let’s quickly go through the highlights of the brilliant campaign from the blue side of Milan.
The title didn’t come easy for Inter, breaking a nine-year-long dominance of Juventus was a hard job but Antonio Conte did it in style. The season didn’t start well for the Italians, as they were eliminated in the group stages of the Champions League. Their fierce rivals, AC Milan were leading the table in a quiet comfortable manner at the end of 2020. But the world saw Inter Milan rise drastically in 2021 as they went on 18 games unbeaten streak.
In February, Inter claimed the top position in Serie A table from the city rivals and then stayed consistent until they won the title on a recent Sunday. Antonio Conte deserves all the praise, he literally turned the tables around with his clear ideas and firm ideologies. A pure genius! Conte had excellent players at his disposal, who fought their hearts out to win it for Inter Milan.
Inter Milan’s standout performers:
Lukaku’s name comes above any other player, he was truly instrumental for the club as the deadly striker displayed his great quality. Lukaku has so far scored 21 goals in Serie A this season. The new Kind of Milan! Christian Eriksen is another man whose improvement has been exquisite after an average start of the season. Lautaro Martinez also came in handy as he has also scored 15 goals in Serie A until now. In fact, the whole team deserves the credit as they brought the best out of themselves. With 4 games still in hand, the claimed champions will finish the season in style and hope to look for bigger targets in Europe in the coming season.
With Serie A close to being concluded for the 20/21 season, the champions can rest assured with quite early success. But things aren’t all well for the Nerazzurri, the economic crisis at the club might see Inter lose their best players, the very players like Lukaku and Martinez who were clinical in the domestic triumph. So far, it’s time to celebrate for Inter Milan. A job well done by Conte and Co.
