We are, yes, we are. Champions of Italy. We can finally scream it, after dreaming of it, after keeping it hidden in the depths of our hearts, after holding on to it like a precious dream that we did not want to waste. We wear this Scudetto. Beautiful, emphatic, deserved. Long-awaited and yearned for.
We are, we are Champions of Italy. We won’t tire of shouting it, of repeating it. We are.
A team that represents an entire population, the Nerazzurri. A team that has won, that has dominated. With only one big regret: not being able to share the joys on the pitch with the Nerazzurri fans. What would San Siro have been like on the day of Inter vs. Juventus? What roar would have surrounded the team’s embrace after Matteo Darmian’s goals against Cagliari and Hellas Verona?
19. A number that also signifies city domination in terms of national league titles. A reward for a season that began at the end of September, after last summer’s bitter ending, a season where results were ground out, game after game, between hardships, difficulties and continuous outbursts of generosity and determination. Not a drop of energy was spared.
We are, we are champions of Italy, and we are thanks to yesterday’s victory over Crotone and Atalanta’s draw against Sassuolo today. There are still four matchdays to go until the end of the season, and the table sees us hoisted up there at a height of 82 points, a peak unattainable for everyone else.
We are champions of Italy thanks to each of our players: Samir Handanovic, Achraf Hakimi, Roberto Gagliardini, Stefan de Vrij, Alexis Sanchez, Matias Vecino, Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez, Aleksandar Kolarov, Stefano Sensi, Andrea Ranocchia, Ivan Perisic, Ashley Young, Arturo Vidal, Nicolò Barella, Christian Eriksen, Daniele Padelli, Danilo D'Ambrosio, Filip Stankovic, Matteo Darmian, Milan Skriniar, Marcelo Brozovic, Alessandro Bastoni, Ionut Radu, Andrea Pinamonti. It is thanks to their sacrifice, to their dedication to our jersey, to their great technical and human qualities, that it has become possible to reach this extraordinary goal.
We are champions of Italy thanks to our coach, Antonio Conte, who with grit and determination, with work and dedication, has led the way towards triumph. Together with his staff and with the precious contribution of all the people who - on and off the pitch - work daily for the growth of the Club, starting with President Steven Zhang, he has helped lead Inter exactly where he wanted to.
And we are champions of Italy thanks to the affection of all Inter fans around the world, who have never failed to support, sustain, and make their love felt for the team. A closeness, despite the forced absence, which has made the difference. That deserves to be rewarded with the prize of this extraordinary Scudetto.
Now is the time to celebrate, for all Inter fans. An emanating joy that we invite you to express in the most responsible way possible: we are champions in this too.
