Football fans have taken to social media to celebrate Inter Milan’s first Serie A title in 11 years.
Antonio Conte’s team sealed the diadem as Atalanta played out a 1-1 draw against Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium – a result which leaves the Milan outfit with an unassailable 13-point lead with four games left to play.
Inter knew they were on the brink of glory after securing a 2-0 away win against Simeon Nwankwo’s Crotone on Saturday evening.

I’m happy for many Inter players, but I’m happy mostly for Romelu Lukaku. “His first touch, he’s slow”. 20 goals. 10 assists. Absolute MVP of this scudetto with Antonio Conte. Well done romelu. You proved them all wrong, and this is only the beginning.— Siavoush Fallahi (@SiavoushF)
Happy for Ashley Young , Matteo Darmian , Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.
Inter Milan are the new scudetto champions ????????— Ugbedeojo (@Certifiedopeboi)
Really delighted that Lukaku went where he is appreciated and won a title. United made the right choice kicking him out for Martial though because when Martial's development is complete, he'll deliver a Treble. We just need to be patient. He'll prove everybody wrong.— Babanla (@biolakazeem)
Romelu “will score you goals but wallahi you won’t know what the goals are for” Lukaku has just lead Inter Milan to their first Serie A title in 11 in years with 21 goals and 10 assists— JMND ™ (@JMNDComps)
