Antonio Conte, winner of 3 ‘scudetti’ as Juventus coach, this Sunday became the successor of José Mourinho, the last coach to have won Serie A with Inter. It took 11 years since 2010 for the blue-blacks to sing the alirón again. 1-1 between Sassuolo and Atalanta made Inter champion.
In the case of Inter de Mourinho, it was the season of the legendary treble, Champions, Serie A and Coppa Italia. The rest is also history: the Portuguese left that same summer of 2010 to Real Madrid, where he could not win the Euro Tournament again. A League, an Italian Cup and a Super Cup were Mou’s balance in front of the whites.
In the “calcium” it is again the time for Conte, who has achieved after the 1-1 between Sassuolo and Atalanta his third “scudetto” as coach. The 19th in Inter’s history. The one that ends the historic run of Juventus: the Turin team had 9 in a row. Something unprecedented. Conte precisely started this streak as a coach of the ‘vecchia signora’ by getting the first 3 on his bench, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14. As a player, he raised 5 as a player also for Juventus.
Conte has been able to bring glory back to Inter, in his second year as a blue-black manager, after this long dry spell. In his first season at the helm of the Interista team, Conte left him one point behind Juventus and the coveted title. And Inter lost the Europa League final against Sevilla.
Inter did not want to wait any longer to be champion again more than a decade later: he did his homework on Saturday by beating bottom side Crotone (who thus relegated to Serie B) and Sassuolo on Sunday gave him hand he needed to mathematically proclaim himself the new champion of Italy.
