Inter Milan wins for fifth straight season

Inter Milan won the Italian soccer Serie A title for the fifth straight season on Saturday in Siena. The win for Inter Milan finished them with 82 points after 38 games. Roma, who won 2-0 in Chievo, finished the season with 80 points.

Diego Milito scored a goal in the 57th minute to seal the deal. It was the second straight Serie A title for former Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho. Mourinho won the Premier League in England during the 2005-2006 season with Chelsea.

Mourinho still has not yet to discuss his future with the team. He has been linked to a move to Real Madrid, but he does not wish to discuss any changes until after the teams’ final game. Mourinho’s contract will expire with Inter Milan after this season.

This was the 18th time Inter Milan won the league title. That is one more than big rival AC Milan, with 17. Juventus is the only team with more titles, they have won 27. Inter Milan will now take on Bayern Munich in the elite Champions League title in Madrid on May 22nd. A win over Bayern Munich would mean the first Italian treble.

The fans in Milan showed up in drones to the Piazza Duomo to celebrate the league title. Waving flags and blowing horns, fans began gathering in the finals minutes of the 1-0 win. Many of these same fans, and many more are expected to return on Sunday when the team returns.
