Italy: Inter saborea and the “Scudetto”

| |

(ANSA) – MILAN, 08 APR – “Hopefully we can celebrate a city that has not celebrated for ten years,” said Antonio Conte, Inter coach who has an 11-point advantage at the top of the tournament and needs other 16 to shout champion in Italy

“We don’t play nice? That’s not our goal. We leave aesthetics when we go to a center to get a facelift,” summed up the 51-year-old coach who is about to repeat with Inter part of the glory he achieved with Juventus

Conte, who added the first three of the last nine successive “scudettos” obtained by the Turin team, is about to dethrone the “Vecchia Signora” and “retire” her as queen of the “Calcio”

The philosophy that he finally managed to transmit to his players is about to bear fruit, as happened with Juventus, with Bari in Serie B in his early days as DT and with Chelsea, with whom he achieved the Premier League in his first season at the helm. of the “Blues”

On the other hand, it did not seem to curdle in its passage through the “azzurra” after replacing Cesare Prandelli after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, although it took it to the quarterfinals in the 2016 European Championship in France, in which Italy lost on penalties with Germany

The difficulties to translate his idea and the resistance of the clubs to yield their players to the national team led to his departure to Chelsea, where he would meet again with success, also achieving the FA Cup in 2018

Back at “Calcio”, Conte took the reins of an Inter that had known glory under the command of Portuguese José Mourinho (he won the triple crown: “scudetto”, Italian Cup and Champions League) in the 2009-10 season, and since then I could not repeat

The elimination in the semifinals of the last Italian Cup (instance in which he also said goodbye in this edition), the “scudetto” that was not and the final lost with Sevilla in the Europa League gave way to speculation about his eventual dismissal

But Inter reiterated their confidence in him, kept him in his post and opted for a formula that is about to become a great joy for the “Nerazzurri” fans.

The triumph of the day before against Sassuolo in a postponed match came by the slightest difference against an opponent who handled the process, but failed in the definition and hit only on the end to give a dose of suspense to the triumph of the local

One of the worst matches in the Inter tournament, which despite everything won a victory thanks to the goals contributed by the Belgian Romelu Lukaku and the Argentine Lautaro Martínez, the most effective duo in Europe only behind that of the Polish Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry at Bayern Munich

To respond to the detractors of the style that Conte imprinted on Inter, the coach himself published a video on social networks of the goal scored by Lukaku against Sassuolo and responded with a smile to the comment of Alessandro Cattelan, a renowned “Nerazzurri” fan that said : “Mommy, how bad we played, how ugly”

Five wins and a draw will now be enough to secure the crown in the remaining nine dates, which is not very unreasonable considering that Inter won the first ten games in a row at the start of the second round of the tournament

Since the 2006-07 season that Inter, at that time under the command of Roberto Mancini, today the coach of the national team, did not build a similar streak. That time there were 17 wins in a row that assured him the “scudetto” with five dates in advance

The first “final” will be played on Sunday against Cagliari, who are struggling to maintain their category and are in the relegation zone, and then Napoli, Spezia, Hellas Verona will arrive. Then he will play with Crotone and Sampdoria, before closing with Roma, Juventus and Udinese. (ANSA)
