Ex-Inter defender Walter Samuel was delighted to see the Nerazzurri reclaim the Scudetto this season, having not done so since Jose Mourinho’s all-conquering treble-winning side in 2010.
Samuel was part of that side under Mourinho and he pointed to the collective strength of this current team as key to this latest success. Former teammate Lucio also shared his own message of congratulations.
“A title won more than ever by the team,” the Argentine told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Everyone who has been called upon has contributed.
“Now, the fans deserve to celebrate.”
Inter fans gathered in their tens of thousands on Sunday around the city, but their celebrations have caused some controversy in Italy due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
