It may have taken him an extra year, but former Chelsea head coach and Chelsea’s last Premier League coach Antonio Conte led Inter to the long-awaited Scudetto, claiming his first Italian league title in eleven years and 19th overall. to pull one in front of rivals in the city, Milan – and to break the suffocation of Juventus after nine consecutive (three of which Conte himself won as their coach).
With Saturday’s 2-0 win over Crotone on Saturday combined with results elsewhere this weekend, Conte fulfilled his stated ambitions when he joined his team’s arch rivals, and he did so in Conte̵
“The best thing I found at Inter was a band that trusted me completely. They trusted my leadership and my vision. This is the greatest thing. The boys developed and matured during the year and we needed that. The Inter players are no longer the ones who took part. They are the players who won. “

Conte’s Inter, led by Chelsea’s former prospect (and recently rumored transfer target) Romelu Lukaku, have lost just two Serie A games all season and finished the title with four more. In the euphoria of this achievement, the immediate idea is to keep it as long as possible, of course.
“I am so happy for all Inter fans around the world, for the team, the staff, the president and everyone. It was a wonderful year for us, I’m really proud to play for Inter. […] For me and many of my teammates, this is our first league title […] last year was also good, but yes, it was the best thing in my career.
“It’s wonderful and I hope to continue like this. I want to thank everyone, I’m really so happy. “
