On Sunday, Inter Milan triumphed their first Serie A title since 2010 and 19th in the club’s history. The Nerazzurri snatched Juventus’ 10th consicutve Scudetto titlle defeating Crotone with a 0-2 win. We see the major Inter Milan players in the first silver of the Italian Giants of the Serie A since 2011.
Romelu Lukaku / Lutaro Martinez
Antonio Conte’s “gentle giant” Lukaku has fueled Inter’s first line since signing for 80 million euros ($ 89 million) from Manchester United shortly after the coach’s arrival two years ago.
Lukaku and Lutaro Martínez formed one of the most dangerous attacking doubles in Europe, with Belgium scoring 21 league goals and Argentina 15 so far.
Coach Conte said, “When I signed Lukaku, a lot of people strangled him. Lautaro Martinez is improving a lot in all aspects. (Alexis) Sanchez is also an important player for us, but he has Lukaku and Lautaro in front of him and this gives me a headache. “
The Italian international Barella entered his second campaign at his hometown club in Cagliari with Inter after five seasons. The 24-year-old midfielder’s partnership with Achraf Hakimi at right-back was quite fruitful, with his performance prompting him to play an increasingly important role in Roberto Mancini’s Italian team.
“I feel more confident in my abilities. Training with great players helped me. I studied them and improved by drawing on them,” said Barella.
Morocco defender Hakimi took some time to warm up after he arrived from Real Madrid last summer for 40 million euros ($ 48 million) after two seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund.
The 22-year-old’s rhythm proved disastrous at right flank with seven goals in his first season while consolidating as Conte’s right defender in his first season at Serie A.
Following his goals against Cagliari and Hellas Verona won the title run-in with a key win, Conte called former Manchester United defender Daramian at the cost of “15 points”.
“Matteo has carved out an important place here at Inter,” said Conte, a player capable of playing most positions behind the four.
“When he arrived there was no big fanfare, but he played for another big club at Manchester United. He is an extraordinary guy, you can count on him at any time.”
The trio behind the line, Milan Skirinar, Stefan de Braj, and Alessandro Bastoni, also offered the strongest defense in the league, with captain Samir Handanovic, usually solid in goal.
The Danish return to training after a difficult start in life in Italy was the key to Inter’s success in the second half of the season.
The former Tottenham and Ajax midfielder needed time to adapt to the highly strategic Italian league following his arrival in early 2020.
“Conte and I needed to get better,” said 29-year-old Eriksen, who scored a decisive free kick in the Italian Cup against AC Milan, a late draw at Napoli, and the first goal in a 2–0 win. Saturday at Croton, which put Inter on the edge of the title.
