Inter Milan are crowned as the Serie A champions
After Atalanta’s 1-1 draw with Sassuolo, Inter Milan are crowned as Serie A champions for the first time in 11 years.
Inter finished Juventus’ 9 season win streak since 2012. Juve was dominating the league since 2012, or we can say Juve dominated a decade.
Inter last lifted the league cup in 2010. In 2011, Ac Milan won the trophy and then the dominating year of Juve started which ended up in 2020.
Antoine Conte Statement
“I’m astonished,” said Antoine Conte.
“We’re breaking up a dynasty. Not even in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that we’d make up this much ground on the team that dominated Serie A for nine years in the space of two seasons.

“This doesn’t mean we’re better than Juventus, they have a great squad; we’ve rolled our sleeves up and started doing some important work, trying to make ourselves credible.”
Inter is qualified for the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League. If Juve fails to win their game against Udinese, they will not qualify for the UCL as they are at 5th spot on the Serie A points table.
Conte was appointed Inter’s coach on May 31, 2019. His contract with the champions will expire next year. He really has changed Inter’s playing style.
“In coming here, I made the toughest decision,” he said.
“It’s a new planet for me. I tested myself, I love big challenges.
“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.”
