Former Chelsea coach helps Inter Milan lift the Serie A trophy after 11 years

There is huge cheering in Serie A as Inter Milan finally broke the eleven-year-old jinx that has seen them lift the Serie A trophy for the first time.

Over the last 11 years, the league was dominated by the Italian giant, Juventus, but this season at the San Siro with former Chelsea coach Antonio Conte in charge has brought about a new change.

Conte’s Inter Milan side laid a hand on the trophy after a 2-0 win over Crotone on Saturday, but Atalanta’s 1-1 draw with Sassuolo on Sunday ensured Serie A leaders retained an unassailable 13-point lead with four games left.

Speaking to 90 Minuto on Rai 2 after Atalanta’s draw with Sassuolo, Conte said going to bed tonight is very pleased with what we have achieved. We are happy for us, for the people who worked to get Inter back to win ways, for the fans. We will definitely feel more relaxed now.
